Ben Platt Publicly Comes Out With Release of Gay Themed Music Video “Ease My Mind”

Pitch Perfect and Dear Evan Hansen star Ben Platt came out publicly as gay today with his newly released  gay theme video for “Ease My Mind” off his forthcoming solo album. Platt said he’s proud to have the “first opportunity to represent my relationships and the men that I’ve loved.”

Platt said of the video, which co-stars Charlie Carver: “When we were conceptualizing this sort of loose narrative that we wanted to connect through the videos, there was not really any moment where we had to decide it should be about me and a man as opposed to anything else because it was just, ‘We’re going to represent what this was inspired by,’ which was this man that I was in love with. So it was really a no-brainer.

Platt’s first video off the album, “Bad Habit”, served as a preview to this reveal. Check it out HERE
