Twitter is freaking out over Kevin McHale maybe probably coming out

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

The 29-year-old actor, who played Artie Abrams on the hit show Glee, posted a rather mysterious image/caption combination that lead fans to wonder if he’s stepping out of the closet publicly.

The moody black-and-white photo shows two hands that appear to be male, along with an emoji that means “I love you” in American Sign Language.

Many have speculated that other hand in the photo belongs to Austin McKenzie, a performer who starred in the Deaf West Theater production of Spring Awakening, and who has worked using ASL extensively.

McHale and McKenzie both starred in the Dustin Lance Black-penned 2017 ABC mini-series about gay rights, When We Rise.

Neither performer has released any official comment, prompting Twitter to go into an absolute tizzy.

Some people responded to the photo with shock…

Others responded with joy…

Some responded by wishing him and his new mystery lover all the best…

Others wanted to know just who the mystery man (or woman) was…

We’ll be sure to keep you posted with any new developments.
