“Live the truth”: Disney star Joshua Bassett comes out!

Has now Joshua Bassett made it official: he really is part of the LGBTQ + community! He had already indicated that he is a member of the rainbow community in a video in which he raved about Harry Styles (27) and joked that this was probably his coming out. A little later, the actor confirmed that he meant business. In a clip, the actor from High School Musical: The Musical: The Series speaks about what it means to him to finally speak openly about his sexuality.

“I’m happy to be part of the LGBTQ + community because they welcome everyone. Don’t let anyone tell you that love is not love”stressed Joshua in a video on his InstagramAccount. However, he does not want to be pigeonholed and does not label his sexual orientation. Because the Disney celebrity is of the opinion that one should not be prematurely stamped: “Sometimes your preference changes, […] or you find that you are not what you thought you are […]. All of that can be true. “

The 20-year-old remembers that as a child, people told him that he had to be straight because he couldn’t be queer for one reason or another. Today the series star can no longer be deterred by these voices: “Even if there are consequences, I would much rather deal with the consequences and live my truth than live in fear.”
