Daniel Newman comes out as gay

Daniel Newman revealed in a six-minute long video that he is gay. The Walking Dead actor decided to go public with his sexuality after he met a homeless girl at a youth centre. The girl had thanked him for supporting the LGBT community, assuming he was straight. When Newman corrected her, she said, “Why have you never said that publicly before? You could help change our lives.”

Newman was reportedly open about his sexuality to his family and close friends, but never with his fans. According to TheSun.co.uk, the actor told his fans, “I realised how important it is in this day and age to be visible — to let people who know you are. When you’re accomplishing incredible things and you’re hiding who you are, you are hurting hundreds of millions of people.”
