AceShowbiz - Actor Connor Jessup came out as gay after finding love with "13 Reasons Why" star Miles Heizer.
The "Locke & Key" star, 25, came out in an Instagram post last June 2019 and, speaking with LGBTQ+ publication Attitude, he explained his new relationship with 25-year-old Miles was "one of the sparks" that prompted him to open up on his sexuality.
"When you're happy, you want to be happy publicly, and it made me think about the whole construction of my life in a way that I had been avoiding," he explained. "I probably wouldn't have (come out) if that hadn't happened."
Connor said that before his relationship with Miles, he never looked for love, adding, "The excuse was always that I was busy working and there was never the time to meet people - that's all true to an extent, but also I think I was afraid."
"There's still this phenomenon where you can be out like I was, but in my day-to-day life, I wasn't doing anything that would make people think I was gay. I wasn't in a relationship and I wasn't looking to be because I was ignoring that part of me. I put myself on pause for a while."
The "American Crime Story" star gushed, "I had relationships, but nothing like the one I'm in right now... This is my first time being in love."
