Is Brandon Flynn gay or bi?
Flynn is an openly gay actor who came out to his friends and family when he was 14. He talked about his coming out journey with TODAY in July 2022.
Growing up, he was a sensitive child who never fit in with the public. He finally felt like himself after joining a play.
He said, “Everything kind of came into focus … kind of cleared up in a way when I was performing, and that’s actually never stopped.”
He then joined New World School of Arts High School, where he met people like him. “It was a bunch of openly queer people, a bunch of artistic people all together,” he commented.
He became friends with such people and found his “chosen family,” who would be with him for the rest of his life. The company gave him the strength to come out as well.
Flynn admitted that coming out at 14 was hard and painful. However, he confessed that “a lot of it had beauty to it.”
However, it took him seven years to come to terms with his sexuality and be confident as an openly gay man. Since he turned 21, he has embraced himself and his sexuality.
After becoming an actor, he never explicitly claimed to be gay. But when in 2017, he posted on Instagram supporting an Australian bill for same-sex marriage, everyone presumed him to be gay.
Flynn told Variety in 2019, “Even though I didn’t ever come out to the public, in a weird way, I just one day read an article where I came out in the terms that they wanted me to come out.”
He added how he did not want to mix his personal life and preference with his professional one, but it happened to be so like that. He never felt the need to address his sexuality because he had already told his close family and friends over a decade ago.
“In a way, anyone would have seen at certain points where I would be dating men and it would be quite obvious, I think. So I never felt the need, in a weird way,” he commented.

Foley had a tragic ending, making fans and followers of the show brawl for days. It left an impact on them, and it did the same to Flynn.
The actor told Entertainment Weekly that his character was a mirror of himself. He said, “Justin was a mirror for me in a lot of ways, in a lot of things that I needed to heal and recover from personally.”
He considered Foley to be a “massive gift” and said, “I don’t know if I have all the words to say what I’ve walked away with, but it’s definitely something and I’ll never ever ever forget Justin Foley.”
