'Love,Simon' Star Keiynan Lonsdale Shares His Romantic New Year's Eve
Actor Keiynan Lonsdale posted video of his New Year's Eve lip-lock action and his fans are loving it.
With text that read, “My first New Years Eve Kiss (heart) and I’m so proud it’s with a boy - And not just any boy..it’s Sparkle Boy @Zakfrio.”
Posted on New Year’s Day, the quick clip has garnered over 267K views at this writing.
Lonsdale has become a darling of the LGBTQ community since he came out publicly on his Instagram in March of 2017.
The highly inspirational post shared that the Flash star had learned over the years to stop “apologizing for falling in love with people no matter their gender.”
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.
Initially, Lonsdale appeared to come out as bisexual but now seems more content as ‘queer.’
And it seems Lonsdale’s relationship with Frio is definitely on the right track.
The couple shared their relationship status via social media during a summer trip to California’s Joshua Tree National Park.
In an Instagram post, the 27-year-old gushed, “Thank you for one of the best wknds of my life. I love ya i love ya i love ya yes i do.”
Frio reciprocated the with a ‘feeling’s mutual’ post that read, “A weekend I’ll remember for life. Find yourself someone you can be 100% yourself with 100% of the time. Someone who holds you accountable to be the very best you can be in this life.”
These crazy kids seem to have it in line. Happy New Year, guys!
