“You are scared that if we vote YES, you won’t be able to show your hate for us”

Star of the hit Netflix show 13 Reasons Why, Brandon Flynn, appears to have come out in a recent Instagram post that slammed the Australian No Campaign.

Flynn, who plays high-school jock Justin Foley in the Netflix show, responded to the recent ‘Vote No’ message that the Australian No Campaign had written in the sky with an emotional, pro-LGBT+ post in which he seemingly declared himself a member of the LGBT+ community.

Read Flynn’s response below:

“Just saw the ‘vote no’ message in the sky, looming over Sydney. Thank you for raising money and hiring on a plane to write your lack of support amongst the clouds. I hope your hate and lack of understanding faces, just like those words will. Too many of my friends have been kicked out of their homes, kept in the closet beat up, killed, ridiculed by church and state, institutionalized… and you are scared that if we vote YES, you won’t be able to show your hate for Us. Fuck that. We’ve been scared shitless our whole lives thanks to all the stigmas that surround Us, stigmas that were set in place by the same kind of people who flew that plane over Sydney. We’ve fought, we’ve come out bravely even in our fear, and you wrote a message in the sky because you’re scared. Equality takes courage, it worries me that too many people in this world lack the balls to stand up for what is right. #fuckhate”

Foreshadowed

In a short film shared earlier this year, Home Movies, 13 Reasons Why co-stars Flynn and Miles Heizer (who plays Alex in the show) shared a kiss, leading fans to speculate on the actors’ relationship.

However, Heizer’s publicist has denied claims that the pair are a couple.

Australia’s No Campaign has come under fire for some extremely homophobic promotional materials, while the non-binding, costly plebiscite itself has come under fire from LGBT+ rights advocates who would have the government legislate without a vote at all.
