In May, the star from “High School Musical, the musical, The Series” said he was figuring out his sexuality. Then when Olivia Rodrigo, who played his love interest on the show, released her song, “Driver’s License,” he got even more popular.

Soon after, he said he was attracted to Harry Styles in an interview with Clever News. He then released a statement on Twitter saying, “love who you love shamelessly.” Although he admitted to being a part of the LGBTQ+ community, he doesn’t find coming out necessary.
