After coming out just three months ago, Colton Haynes' truth has set him free in so many ways, opening up more opportunities and career-changing doors than ever before.
"I've experienced a lot of 'wow' moments in my life," he began. "But I think tonight, it's probably topping all of them."
He continued, "My coming out was a bit splashy for many people...That's just how entertainment works. It makes a bigger deal out of everyone's personal decisions." However, he noted that he never "made the decision" to be gay, but rather it came just as "naturally as the color" of his eyes, which is why he felt at home among the LGBT advocates of the night.
