TWO young actors have come out as bisexual this week.

Australian Keiynan Lonsdale, star of The Flash, came out in an Instagram post.

“I like to change my hair, I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, and I like guys (yes),” he wrote.

Lonsdale, 25, said he has been working on accepting himself and his sexuality.

“Not faking shit anymore, not apologising for falling in love with people no matter their gender,” he wrote.

“Ya know more and more I see so many young people being their best/truest selves, it’s fucking inspiring… So what have I been waiting for?!”

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. ❤

Arrested Development and Broad City actor Alia Shawkat also came out as bi in an interview with Out magazine.

Shawkat, 28, spoke about growing up as a tomboy and being unsure of her sexuality.

“Now I consider myself bisexual, and I think balancing my male and female energies has been a big part of me growing as an actor,” she said.

“I think my influences are… growing up in Los Angeles and being exposed to lots of gay artists.”

Shawkat has appeared in several queer roles, including Ilana Glazer’s lover in Broad City, and gay Dalia in the arthouse film May in the Summer.
