These “13 Reasons Why” and “Locke & Key” Stars Are Dating

It's Instagram official.

The 13 Reasons Why and Locke & Key crossover we’ve been waiting for is finally here.

Locke & Key’s Connor Jessup is dating 13 Reasons Why actor Miles Heizer. The two Netflix stars made it Instagram official this past weekend, with Jessup, 25, posting a picture of them together in honor of Valentine’s Day.

“I’m late but I love you, you’re good, you make me better, happy v+1 day,” Jessup captioned the photo, sharing it with his 123,000 followers.

The pair have popped up together in each other’s Instagram posts for the past several months, leading fans to speculate that they were an item.

This isn’t the first time Heizer has been the center of romantic gossip. Back in 2017, the 25-year-old actor was rumored to be dating his 13 Reasons Why co-star Brandon Flynn.

“This is a false report,” Heizer’s rep told Page Six at the time. “Miles and Brandon are friends from the show but are not dating.”

I knew I was gay when I was thirteen, but I hid it for years. I folded it and slipped it under the rest of my emotional clutter. Not worth the hassle. No one will care anyway. If I can just keep making it smaller, smaller, smaller…. My shame took the form of a shrug, but it was shame. I’m a white, cis man from an upper-middle class liberal family. Acceptance was never a question. But still, suspended in all this privilege, I balked. It took me years. It’s ongoing. I’m saying this now because I have conspicuously not said it before. I’ve been out for years in my private life, but never quite publicly. I’ve played that tedious game. Most painfully, I’ve talked about the gay characters I’ve played from a neutral, almost anthropological distance, as if they were separate from me. These evasions are bizarre and embarrassing to me now, but at the time they were natural. Discretion was default, and it seemed benign. It would be presumptuous to assume anyone would care, yeah? And anyway, why should I have to say anything? What right do strangers have to the intimate details of my life? These and other background whispers––new, softer forms of the same voices from when I was thirteen, fourteen, fifteen…. Shame can come heavy and loud, but it can come quiet too; it can take cover behind comfort and convenience. But it’s always violent. For me, this discretion has become airless. I don’t want to censor––consciously or not––the ways I talk, sit, laugh, or dress, the stories I tell, the jokes I make, my points of reference and connection. I don’t want to be complicit, even peripherally, in the idea that being gay is a problem to be solved or hushed. I’m grateful to be gay. Queerness is a solution. It’s a promise against cliche and solipsism and blandness; it’s a tilted head and an open window. I value more everyday the people, movies, books, and music that open me to it. If you’re gay, bi, trans, two-spirit or questioning, if you’re confused, if you’re in pain or you feel you’re alone, if you aren’t or you don’t: You make the world more surprising and bearable. To all the queers, deviants, misfits, and lovers in my life: I love you. I love you. Happy Pride!

Jessup, best known for his starring roles in TNT’s Falling Skies and ABC’s American Crime, came out in June 2019, saying he was “grateful to be gay.”

“Queerness is a solution,” he added. “I don’t want to censor—consciously or not—the ways I talk, sit, laugh, or dress, the stories I tell, the jokes I make, my points of reference and connection.”

Congrats to the happy couple!

I write about drag queens. Dolly Parton once ruffled my hair and said I was "just the cutest thing ever."
