Kevin McHale is the American actor and singer who famously portrayed Artie Abrams, a student with disabilities, in the Fox musical dramedy series Glee. Though McHale has kept a relatively low media profile since Glee ended in 2015, he may have just subtly come out on Instagram. It’s unclear though if the image is evidence of Kevin McHale coming out, or just supporting same-sex love in general.
The image in question shows two seemingly male-hands holding another seemingly male hand. The caption is simply an emoji representing the ASL hand gesture for “I love you.”
Gay Star News (GSN) speculated that the hand may belong to Austin McKenzie, a performer renowned for his acting work bridging the hearing and deaf communities. GSN writer, Anya Crittenton states, “The pair have been spending time together and frequently pop up on each other’s social media accounts,” but adds that neither McHale, McKenzie nor their representatives have made any sort of statement.
