Gone are the days of celebs doing huge magazine interviews to come out. Colton Haynes — the 27-year-old actor best known as Jackson Whittemore in MTV’s Teen Wolf and Roy Harper/Arsenal in The CW’s Arrow — just came out in a comment he made via Tumblr.
When Tumblr user pornandmariah, posted the comment “when I found out colton haynes had a secret gay past i got so excited even though i know it makes absolutely no difference in my life”, Haynes re-blogged pornandmariah’s comment and replied, “Was it a secret? Let’s all just enjoy life & have no regrets :)”
His non-refutation publicly confirms his gayness, but anyone following gay media during the premier of Teen Wolf knew that Haynes was not always okay with everyone knowing about his love of dudes. When Teen Wolf first premiered, Haynes hired a lawyer to prevent blogs from running pictures of him kissing another guy in the March 2006 issue of gay photo mag XY.
On July 24, 2014 Haynes posted a picture of his gay brother Joshua, Joshua’s husband Scott and their child Wren.
