“[No Tears Left To Cry] is gayer than me and I ACCEPT.”

–Kevin McHale, former Glee actor, confirming rumors about his sexuality by coming out on Twitter.

McHale posted on Friday that Ariana Grande’s new single “No Tears Left to Cry” was gayer than him and thanked the musical artist for the new song.

Fans had been speculating that McHale may have come out on Instagram in March after he posted a black and white photo showing him holding hands with another person, presumed to be male.

The caption only had one emoji, which means “I love you” in American sign language.

Last week, McHale released a selfie showing him and actor Austin McKenzie. While their relationship has not been confirmed, it did suggest many fans were correct that the two men were seeing each other.

 However, McHale didn’t just come out on Twitter — he also offered an idea to Ariana Grande that we wholeheartedly support.

Can someone get on this ASAP?
