For years now, actor/hottie Garrett Clayton has earned the attention of the public for his work in The Teen Beach Movie, King Cobra, and Hairspray Live. Among those projects, the handsome actor portrayed a 1960s high school heartthrob and gay porn star Brent Corrigan.
With the release of his new film coming up, titled “Reach”, the 27-year-old shared his thoughts on taking on the project specifically mentioning suicide, school shootings and their effect on him……And along the way, Clayton came out and named his current boyfriend.
“With the release of my new movie REACH coming up, I thought it was important to explain why I took on this project in the first place. REACH deals with some very serious and timely topics that have affected me personally, and have likely influenced many of your lives as well. (I also prefer to share things that are particularly important for me here on my IG) instead of in some random magazine or online article – because you are the ones that have been rooting for me and following me on my professional and personal journey in life”.
“When I read the script for REACH, I immediately knew it was a film I had to be a part of. I have personally dealt with suicide within my own family, intense bullying in high school, and – on top of it all – myself and the man I’ve been in a relationship with for a long time Blake Knight. We have both experienced shootings within our hometown school systems, and have witnessed the heartache that takes place in affected communities after such tragic events. These topics – not always easy to discuss- are all close to my heart, and, knowing how serious they are, I wanted to share this with you all. This film has come from the perspectives of people who care deeply about these issues, and if watching it helps even one person… then it was all worth it”.
Boyfriend Blake Knight followed up Clayton’s post with one of his own:
And one together thanking everybody for their support and love:
HOW SWEET IS THAT? We wish all the best and love to Garrett and Blake!!!
