Sam has been openly gay for quite some time, but when it comes to Brandon, there has been a lot of speculation about his sexuality. He has always been a big advocate for the LGBTQI+ community, sharing photos to his Instagram, encouraging people to #fuckhate and embrace love of all kinds, and he appeared in a short film where he kissed his 13 Reasons Why male co-star, Miles Heizer, who plays Alex.
In an ironic twist of local-fate, his unofficial coming out happened when he took to Instagram to urge Australians to VOTE YES in the marriage equality postal survey, where he strongly hinted that he counts himself as a member of the LGBTQI+ community.
But now, Brandon is spreading his message of equality and love beyond his Instagram page, by going public with Sam Smith — and, in our opinion, becoming our favourite new couple of 2017.
Here are the cute AF shots of the two out on their date:
The only downside to this new pairing? It might mean that we won’t have any more punch-you-in-the-feels ballads coming from Sammy boy now he’s all loved-up. But it’s okay, he just dropped his new single (with an album on the way), so we at least have 10+ tracks to keep our broken hearts going.
