He’s Wally West and in theory Keiynan Lonsdale should only be judged for his portrayal as the iconic DC Comics character.
On the CW show The Flash, Lonsdale plays Kid Flash and as many of us that follow the show know, he does an incredible job at it.
Lonsdale is one of the many reasons why some lobby Warner Brothers to incorporate the CW timeline with the emerging DCCU.
Fans want to see Kid Flash get his own show or on the big screen much like he was seen in Young Justice.
In short, Lonsdale is and has been a critical part of this character’s lineage.
Over the weekend, Lonsdale took to Instagram to share his lifestyle choices with fans in a lengthy post.
I like to change my hair, I like to take risks with how I dress, I like girls, & I like guys (yes), I like growing, I like learning, I like who I am and I really like who I’m becoming. Spent way too many years hating myself, thinking I was less valuable because I was different.. which is just untrue. A couple years ago I was able to accept myself, & it saved my life, but now I’ve gotten to a new road block & I feel kind of lost. I gotta take the next step & actually embrace who I am, which is pretty exciting. Not faking shit anymore, not apologising for falling in love with people no matter their gender. I’ve become bored of being insecure, ashamed, scared… no one should feel like that about themselves, especially when there is so much good life to live. Ya know more & more I see so many young people being their best / truest selves, it’s fucking inspiring… so what have I been waiting for!? Who knows. Everyone in their own time. I hope we can all learn to embrace who we are & not judge people who aren’t exactly the same as us. The truth is we are all family, we’re all one. Just love. Keiy. ❤
Kudos to Lonsdale for sharing his truth. To many people are afraid to live in their own.
Now let’s get back to waiting on the Kid Flash solo jaunt.
