Colton Haynes

I didn’t have much to say today, but I’m still ecstatic that Colton Haynes came out. I had to go,out and buy the Entertainment Weekly with the article in it. It was actually harder to find than I thought it would be. Luckily, Barnes and Nobles had a copy of it. In it he gives a quote that he says could be his mantra. It’s from a writer named Ben Loory: “Once there was a man who was afraid of his shadow. Then he met it. Now he glows in the dark.” I like that quote and I guess we all have to face our fears at some point in life or they just paralyze us. Haynes opened up about his lifelong struggle with anxiety, which he said led to hospitalisation, unemployment, and loss of friendships. It is somethin people should hear more about because mental illness can make people feel so abnormal when in fact millions suffer from various forms of mental illness.

Haynes,who is immensely popular and active on a number of social media platforms, has previously refused to discuss his sexuality and love life, although fans have often speculated about it. However, he has been an outspoken supporter of LGBT rights, sharing pictures and messages of support online of his gay brother Joshua and his husband Scott. In a Tumblr post posted earlier on Saturday, Haynes expressed excitement about 2016, saying he “can’t wait to live a happy/healthy life this year.”

“No fear this year,” he had tweeted on New Year’s Eve. “Cheers #2016.”


About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
