Actor Daniel Newman’s Memorial Day Weekend was probably way gayer than yours
The ‘Walking Dead’ star spent the holiday surrounded by hot half naked men at the Portifino Island Resort on Pensacola Beach, Florida.
Daniel came out on social media in 2017 and in a moving YouTube video he talked about having had an eye-opening encounter with a fan at a homeless shelter for LGBTQ youth.
“This girl came up to me, and she was like, ‘Thank you so much for helping out with the LGBT [community].’ And she said it like she didn’t deserve it,” recalls Newman, “And I was like, ‘Why?’ and she said, ‘Because you’re straight.’…it hit me like a gut punch.”
At the Glaad Awards early in May 2019, Daniel gave some good advice to young queer people.
“Find the strength inside yourself to just be honest, be out. It’s crazy that you can have this idea that life is gonna suck afterward but then you realize it’s just amazing,” he said.
Wise words indeed, Daniel!
