Colton Haynes delayed coming out as gay after being told he wouldn’t get roles in Hollywood

The 28-year-old former “Arrow” star revealed in a SiriusXM interview with Andy Cohen that he delayed publicly coming out as gay for years because he was advised it would ruin his budding career as an actor.

The former male model officially came out as gay in May 2016 in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. Though he’s now happily engaged to celebrity floral designer Jeff Leatham, he revealed in 2016 to Out magazine that accepting his sexuality took some time — and heartache.

Meanwhile

Gay flag set on fire at Ukraine gay parade

Security forces physically stood between gay marchers in the Gay Pride Parade in Kiev, Ukraine and demonstrators against the parade.

There were no reports of injuries but the gay flag was set on fire.

Demonstrators heckled and cursed, stating that the Ukraine should not harbor gay families and should only have families with fathers,mothers and children.

And lastly

Participants in a Pride march were stunned over the weekend, when members of the Ku Klux Klan turned up to try and disrupt it.

Two hundred people turned up to take part in a rally in Florence, Alabama, organised by the LGBT group Equality Shoals.

However, the event, thought to be the first of its kind in Northwest Alabama, was marred when protesters turned up in Ku Klux Klan robes.

The handful of KKK protesters, who were joined by members of other neo-Nazi and white nationalist groups, waved racist insignias and chanted homophobic slogans.

Officers from Florence Police Department attended to ensure there was no violence, but their stance angered some members of the LGBT community.

In a Facebook post, the police department posted a picture of the LGBT rights activists and KKK, writing: “Two sides, opposing views. Peaceful rally. Our duty and honor to provide security and ensure the safety of both groups.”

Another post from the police department included the hashtag #defendersoftheconfedoratecross.
