Former Disney star, Garrett Clayton comes out as Gay and identifies boyfriend

by MK Scott - SGN Contributing Writer

According to Towleroad and several sources, actor Garrett Clayton, best known for Disney Channel's Teen Beach Movie, NBC's 'Hairspray Live!,' and the feature film King Cobra, in which he played Brent Corrigan, has come out as gay. Clayton said he was prompted to come out by the subject matter of his upcoming film Reach, in which he plays a teen considering suicide.

Wrote Clayton in an Instagram post: 'With the release of my new movie REACH coming up, I thought it was important to explain why I took on this project in the first place. REACH deals with some very serious and timely topics that have affected me personally, and have likely influenced many of your lives as well. (I also prefer to share things that are particularly important for me here on my IG) instead of in some random magazine or online article - because you are the ones that have been rooting for me and following me on my professional and personal journey in life.'

He added: 'When I read the script for REACH, I immediately knew it was a film I had to be a part of. I have personally dealt with suicide within my own family, intense bullying in high school, and - on top of it all - myself and the man I've been in a relationship with for a long time, Blake Knight, have both experienced shootings within our hometown school systems, and have witnessed the heartache that takes place in affected communities after such tragic events. These topics - not always easy to discuss - are all close to my heart, and, knowing how serious they are, I wanted to share this with you all. This film has come from the perspectives of people who care deeply about these issues, and if watching it helps even one person& then it was all worth it.'
