Former Glee star Kevin McHale is getting something off his chest: he’s gay.
According to People, McHale, who portrayed Artie Abrams on the hit show, is opening up about his sexuality after much speculation.
He sparked the interest of many after posting a photo cuddling with actor Austin McKenzie a few weeks ago. While he says he was never trying to hide it, he admits he “wasn’t obviously shouting it from the mountaintops.”
He also explained:
“If somebody was a big fan and following everything I was doing [on social media], like the people I interact with on Twitter on a daily basis, I think there was zero surprise. People knew.”
He continued on to say:
“The organizations I’ve been supporting and all that sort of work has been apparent, at least to me. I’ve always supported LGBT organizations and things like that because I felt like I had a vested interest in this where I wanted to help out.”
A look back at his Twitter account does reveal that McHale wasn’t trying to hide anything. When Ariana Grande released her latest single, “No Tears Left to Cry,” the actor said in a Twitter post:
“#NoTearsLeftToCry is gayer than me and I ACCEPT. Ty @ArianaGrande”
