This isn't your typical 'Coming Out' story.

Reid Ewing, star of hit television show Modern Family, ignored coming out and shared his attraction towards a man like any other normal human being could. Being gay is becoming less and less of a taboo which means less and less people are 'coming out' and just carrying on with their everyday lives. It's a really wonderful revelation to see LGBTQ+ individuals not having to hide their sexuality and feeling comfortable in their own skin.
For Ewing, he was recently in the news for his battle with Body Dysmorphia that was posted in Huffington Post's Healthy Living section.
"Body dysmorphic disorder is a mental illness in which a person obsesses over the way he or she looks," he wrote in his essay. "In my case, my looks were the only thing that mattered to me."
"I think people often choose cosmetic surgery in order to be accepted, but it usually leaves them feeling even more like an outsider. We don't hear enough stories about cosmetic surgery from this perspective," confessed the 27-year-old.
This week, Ewing posted a tweet about a past segment about Body Dysmorphia produced by Good Morning America. He thew in commentary noting that Eugene Bata is "hot af". A fan quickly asked Ewing if he was outing himself. Ewing corrected the fan stating , "I was never in".

Cheers to you, Reid Ewing, for being proud of who you are and spreading awareness on Body Dysmorphia!

I'm glad more and more celebrities are coming out. It's really going to help with opening up the doors for the LGBTQ community!

Interesting perspective on this! I would say it would be helpful if he explained exactly what that meant, I feel like we can definitely star a movement if we understand that we can stop defining things as "in the closet" or "out"
