Over the weekend it emerged that someone had taken time out of their very busy lives to write ‘Vote No’ across the sky above Australia. As the country prepares to vote on marriage equality, it became clear that homophobia was well and truly alive Down Under.

But while some people are adamant to stop LGBT+ people being able to legally marry one another, others are supporting the movement; including 13 Reasons Why star Brandon Flynn who came in a defiant social media post in response to the act.

Flynn, who plays bad boy Justin, was rumoured to be dating Miles Hezier (sending fans into a shipping frenzy), confirmed his sexuality, when he posted this on his Instagram account:


After highlighting how ridiculous it is the go to such extreme lengths for measures of hate, Flynn goes on to mention some of the strife his gay friends have endured growing up;

We’ve been scared shitless our whole lives thanks to all the stigmas that surround Us, stigmas that were set in place by the same kind of people who flew that plane over Sydney. We’ve fought, we’ve come out bravely even in our fear, and you wrote a message in the sky because you’re scared. 

He ended his message: Equality takes courage, it worries me that too many people in this world lack the balls to stand up for what is right. #fuckhate
