“The Flash” actresses Candice Patton and Danielle Panabaker sent love to their co-star Keiynan Lonsdale after the actor came out as bisexual.

Both Patton and Panabaker — who play Iris West and Caitlin Snow/Killer Frost, respectively, on the CW series —  replied to Lonsdale’s coming out post and expressed their admiration for the Australian actor’s bold decision to disclose his gender identity to the world.

Lonsdale came out as bisexual in a lengthy Instagram post he shared on Saturday. In it, Lonsdale who portrays Wally West/Kid Flash on “The Flash” — wrote that he like girls and guys as well. He admitted that he spent several years of his life hating himself and thinking that he was less valuable because he was different. “The Divergent Series” actor shared that he was able to accept who he really is a couple of years ago. Although that self-acceptance saved his life, he revealed that he’s gotten to a new road block and feel kind of lost.

Lonsdale wrote that he’s now done being insecure, ashamed and scared, before sharing  that seeing a lot of young people being their best and truest selves inspired him to fully embrace his true self. The actor ended his post hoping that everyone can all learn to accept who they really are and not judge people who are not exactly the same as they are. “The truth is we are all family, we’re all one. Just love,” Lonsdale wrote.

After his coming out received overwhelming positive response from fans , Lonsdale took to Twitter to thank everyone for their love and support.

Lonsdale has been an advocate of LGBTQ rights long before he came out. As pointed out by The Daily Telegraph, Lonsdale was one of the many celebrities who took to social media to voice their support of same sex marriage following the historic 2015 Supreme Court ruling that ended same sex marriage bans in 14 states of the US in which it was still illegal.

Lonsdale also expressed his opposition to North Carolina’s House Bill 2, a.k.a. the anti-LGBT law enacted last year that has put the state through widespread disapproval, boycotts and lawsuits. North Carolina’s House Bill 2, which was passed in response to an anti-discrimination ordinance enacted by the city of Charlotte, prohibited transgender people from using public restrooms consistent with their gender identities. It also prohibited municipalities from passing anti-discrimination laws and nullified those that were already in place. Last March, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper signed a bill repealing House Bill 2. See Lonsdale’s tweet about the controversial bill below:

Lonsdale’s Wally was introduced to “The Flash” as the estranged drag-racer son of Joe (Jesse L. Martin), and the younger brother of Iris. He then became Kid Flash after Barry (Grant Gustin) created the “Flashpoint” timeline. When Barry travelled to 2024 in Season 3, episode 19, Barry found out that Wally got a shattered spine after the younger speedster faced off against Savitar. In the trailer for next week’s Season 3, episode 22, Kid Flash is seen getting strangled by the God of Speed. Is this the fight that will ultimately put Kid Flash into a catatonic state?

“The Flash” Season 3, episode 22, titled “Infantino Street” airs on Tuesday, May 16 at 8 p.m. EDT on The CW.
