Teen Wolf and Desperate Housewives actor Charlie Carver came out as gay in a series of awesome Instagram posts yesterday, so that's pretty great.
Charlie - who also now stars in The Leftovers with his twin brother Max - opened up about his decision to talk publicly about his sexuality, after years of keeping his private life separate from his professional one.
"I feared I would be limiting myself to a type, to a perception with limits that I was not professionally comfortable with," he said.
"And I created in my imagination an industry that was just as rigid in this belief as well. After having the privilege of playing a range of characters, gay, straight and otherwise, I realize this is not the case."
Charlie went on to reveal that he knew he was gay from the age of 12, and that he grew up "in a family where [his] orientation was celebrated."
Sharing the same pic with the series of posts, he reiterated the message it conveys, ending with: "I now believe that by omitting this part of myself from the record, I am complicit in perpetuating the suffering, fear, and shame cast upon so many in the world."
"So now, let the record show this -- I self-identify as gay ... I owe it to myself, more than anything, to be who I needed when I was younger."
Charlie's twin Max tweeted his support shortly after the posts went up, and retweeted a message which read: "ur brother is such an inspiration :) i'm so fucking proud of him".
Us too. How about you lot?
