Connor Jessup Came Out as Gay in 2019
The 27-year-old Canadian actor Connor Jessup explained his choice to reveal his homosexuality in a long Instagram post in June 2019, corresponding with Pride Month, in a cover story for Attitude last year.
Jessup told Attitude,
It was something I’d been thinking about more and more, and the reasons that I wasn’t saying anything felt thinner to me every day. The excuses that I’d been giving myself for years were dissolving, and I couldn’t think of any reason not to.
Jessup stated in his coming-out update that he had known he was gay from the age of 13, but chose to conceal it for "years."
He folded it and put it under the rest of his emotional debris, he said, adding that he would speak about his gay characters from an objective, almost anthropological perspective as if they were different from him.

When you’re happy, you want to be happy publicly, and it made me think about the whole construction of my life in a way that I had been avoiding. I probably wouldn’t have [come out] if that hadn’t happened.
