LGBTQ Heroes – Keiynan Lonsdale: You can be gay and happy
There’s a lot to like about Keiynan Lonsdale – the acting roles, the music, and his sense of style. But Lonsdale has had his struggles to deal with – in a video released to celebrate Pride Month, he reflects on how he navigated his coming-out journey.
Born in 1991, Lonsdale began his career in Australia in 2007. Having built experience with a number of roles, it was in 2015 when he was cast as Wally West in The Flash that his momentum began to build.
In the film Love, Simon, Lonsdale starred as Bram — the love interest for Simon. Lonsdale has credited the role with helping him to navigate his own sexuality.
Lonsdale’s music releases have included Higher (2015), Good Life (2017), Kiss The Boy (2018), and Preach (2018).
