Keiynan Lonsdale is tired of all the labels. After all, he is still Keiynan Lonsdale.
The “Flash” actor addressed his sexuality and his preferred pronouns during an Instagram Live Q&A on Tuesday.
“I’m still surprised I get this question. I came out last year as not straight,” he said. “Now it just depends on the day, sometimes I’m bisexual, sometimes I’m gay, sometimes I feel straight, sometimes I’m not anything. It doesn’t matter. Either way, through all that, I’m Keiynan. So if your question is, ‘Am I Keiynan?’ Yes, I am Keiynan.”
And do not get the “Love, Simon” star started on pronouns.
“Okay, this might sound stupid but I don’t care. I don’t think this is offensive… but I don’t want to go by ‘he’ anymore, I just want to go by ‘tree.’ I want people to call me ‘tree’ because we all come from trees, so it doesn’t matter if you’re a he or a she or they or them,” Lonsdale explained. “At the end of the day, everyone’s a tree.”
“I want to call my friends tree, and me tree, and everyone tree,” he continued. “So, I think like when people ask me what my preferred pronoun is, I’m going to say ‘tree’. I’m not high by the way, this is just me.”
