Walking Dead Actor Daniel Newman Comes Out As Gay In Heartfelt Video #OUTandPROUD

Actor Daniel Newman, who currently portrays a member of The Kingdom on The Walking Dead has come out as gay in an amazing video after posting to Twitter on Thursday night.

“I’m an actor. The whole world, the industry, is like ‘here’s your big break, you’re on The Walking Dead, you can’t come out, you can’t be in the press, because everything you work so hard for is going to be gone. There’s no gay or bi leading men, no action heroes, your career’s going to be over.’ I don’t care. Because I know what’s right.”

Newman said his decision to come out happened after a  conversation he had while volunteering at a shelter for homeless LGBTQ youth, when a girl came up to him and thanked him for volunteering as a straight ally.

Welcome to the tribe Daniel. #OUTandPROUD
