Did Colton Haynes Just Come Out?

The "Arrow" hero may have crossed off one of his New Year's resolutions with a comment on tumblr.

Did Colton Haynes just take the “new year, new you” mantra to heart and come out as gay?

On tumblr, user pornandmariah wrote “when I found out colton haynes had a secret gay past i got so excited even though i know it makes absolutely no difference in my life.”

On his official tumblr, Haynes replied “Was it a secret? Let’s all just enjoy life & have no regrets :)”

Before his big breaks on Teen Wolf and Arrow, Haynes appeared in a romantic spread in XY, a magazine targeting young gay men.

In the photos, he and another young man are seen kissing and embracing in a pool. The images were pulled off numerous sites shortly after Haynes became a recognizable Hollywood actor.

Haynes has always been an ally to the LGBT community—including his brother Josh and his husband, Scott.

Regardless of whether he has come out or not, we wish Colton nothing but success and joy in 2016!
