The 29-year-old’s admission comes less than a week after he posted an adorable picture of himself and rumored boyfriend Austin McKenzie cuddling on Instagram.
The speculation about Kevin’s sexuality really picked up after he uploaded a different pic of himself holding a man’s hand last month and captioned it with the American Sign Language (ASL) symbol for ‘I love you.’
Austin is an actor who performed in the Deaf West Theatre’s production of Spring Awakening and has a degree in ASL.
It took a lot of courage for the When We Rise star to be open about something so personal to him and fans were quick to show their support on social media.
Congats on just coming out 💗
