no title

Keiynan Lonsdale is tired of running away from his identity!

The Flash star opened up about his sexuality on Saturday in a powerful Instagram post, which started off with a Dr. Seussian list of the things he likes:

“I like to change my hair, I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, & I like guys (yes), I like growing, I like learning, I like who I am and I really like who I’m becoming.”

And we like that subtly heroic admission there, Keiy!

The 25-year-old actor, who plays Wally West (AKA Kid Flash) on the hit CW series, insisted he was “not faking shit anymore” and was fully ready to embrace his identity, adding:

“Not faking shit anymore, not apologising for falling in love with people no matter their gender. I’ve become bored of being insecure, ashamed, scared… no one should feel like that about themselves, especially when there is so much good life to live.”

Lonsdale, who grew up in Australia, received an outpouring of love on Twitter — and shared a heartfelt tweet of his own on Saturday in response to the support:

AH-Mazing!

We’re so proud of the actor for no longer being afraid to express his true self!

I like to change my hair, I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, & I like guys (yes), I like growing, I like learning, I like who I am and I really like who I’m becoming. Spent way too many years hating myself, thinking I was less valuable because I was different.. which is just untrue. A couple years ago I was able to accept myself, & it saved my life, but now I’ve gotten to a new road block & I feel kind of lost. I gotta take the next step & actually embrace who I am, which is pretty exciting. Not faking shit anymore, not apologising for falling in love with people no matter their gender. I’ve become bored of being insecure, ashamed, scared… no one should feel like that about themselves, especially when there is so much good life to live. Ya know more & more I see so many young people being their best / truest selves, it’s fucking inspiring… so what have I been waiting for!? Who knows. Everyone in their own time. I hope we can all learn to embrace who we are & not judge people who aren’t exactly the same as us. The truth is we are all family, we’re all one. Just love. Keiy. ├ó┬¥┬ñ
