TV: Flash’s Keiynan Lonsdale: “I Don’t Want to Go By ‘He’ Anymore”

Keiynan Lonsdale

Love, Simon actor Keiynan Lonsdale opened up about his sexual orientation and preferred pronoun on Tuesday in an Instagram Q&A with fans.

Asked by a fan if he’s gay, Lonsdale responded: “I’m still surprised I get this question. I came out not really as anything last year, but as not straight. 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, throughout all of that, I’m Keiynan. So if your question is, ‘Am I Keiynan?’ yes, I am Keiynan.”

A short time later Lonsdale replied: “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 a they or a them. At the end of the day, everyone’s a tree. I want to call my friends tree, and me tree, and everyone tree. So, I think like now 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.”
