While the actor hasn’t been hiding his sexuality, this is the first time he has publicly addressed it. It appears that McHale — best known for playing Artie Abrams on the Fox show from 2009 to 2015 — also has a boyfriend.

On Instagram, the actor has been sharing cuddly photos with his rumored beau, actor Austin McKenzie.

McHale, 29, and McKenzie, 24, appeared together in the 2017 miniseries When We Rise.

While McHale didn’t confirm his sexuality during his time on Glee, he was always a supporter of LGBTQ rights.

“We need nationwide marriage equality now because two people in love should never be illegal,” he said in a video for the Human Rights Campaign’s Americans for Marriage Equality campaign in 2014. “Family, to me, is about surrounding yourself with loved ones and having them by your side, no matter what happens. Committed and loving gay and lesbian couples deserve to have their love, their relationships, and their families recognized like everyone else.”

The comments left on McHale’s tweets have been overwhelmingly supportive — which is always refreshing to see in the dark age of Twitter.
