The plot thickens

Kevin McHale follows up that cryptic coming out post with even more cryptic shirtless post

Kevin McHale may or may not have come out on Instagram yesterday.

The 29-year-old Glee star posted a mysterious image/caption combination to Instagram showing two hands that both appear to be male, along with an emoji that means “I love you” in American Sign Language.

People immediately began speculating who the other hand might belong to, and if this was McHale’s way of coming out publicly. Many seem to think it’s McHale’s When We Rise co-star Austin McKenzie, who starred in the Deaf West Theater production of Spring Awakening, and who has worked using ASL extensively.

So far, neither McHale nor McKenzie have officially responded to the rumors. But then today, Kevin posted another cryptic picture. In it, he is seen shirtless and reading a book by a pool in Barra Grande. In the distance, another hot shirtless dude can be seen with his back to the camera. The photo is captioned: “My favorite way to be anti social #tb“.
