Is Miles Heizer Gay?
Yes, Heizer is gay and a member of the LGBTQ+ community. He came out of the closet when he was at the age of 19.
In an interview with L'OFFICIEL in May 2021, the 29-year-old got candid about the first time he came out as gay and disclosed that he had a tragically typical coming out.
The 13 Reasons Why actor confessed he feared embracing his orientation for a long time. In his own words, it took him a while to muster the courage to speak up.
Thankfully, the trailblazing celebration and empowerment from the LGBTQ+ community eventually helped him come out to his parents, family members, and friends.
Heizer recounted that opening up about himself was a fantastic experience. He reasoned that the sudden turn from being a closeted gay to being free was wonderful.
Later in the interview, Heizer opened up about his first participation in the Los Angeles’ West Hollywood parade. He mentioned how fun it was to make friends in the LGBTQ+ community, stating he could relate with them.
The Kentucky native added he had never been around people of the community up to that point and reiterated that it was delightful to be with people who had undergone the same experience as him.

What cat in what tree did I rescue in my last life to deserve you in this one? If you really knew how much I love you you’d have me committed.
