In a personal essay for Teen Vogue, actor Karan Brar opened up about his sexuality and shared how keeping his sexuality hidden from the world took a toll on his mental health. The actor wrote,


“For years, I had nailed the whole ‘compartmentalizing’ thing and I figured I didn’t need to stop then. There was public Karan and private Karan. Both were real, but trying to hold them in one body was proving to be too much. Still, I kept pushing myself until cracks started to form. It all came to a head while I was drunkenly hunched over a toilet bowl, watching my tacos from lunch and several White Claws come back out. I decided that was the best time to come out to Cameron and Sophie.”

The actor then came out to Cameron Boyce and Sophie Reynolds, revealing that it was hard for him at first, but Boyce and Reynolds’ positive reaction made him feel safe.
