Bex Taylor-Klaus, who has starred in Arrow and Scream, has revealed that they’re non-binary.

The 23-year-old actor came out as gay in 2016 by tweeting: “hello my name is bex and yes the rumours are true I am v gay.”

And their latest announcement was made with a similar air of nonchalance, with Taylor-Klaus – who is also a series regular on Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender, which will have an explicitly gay character when it returns – tweeting it out in much the same way.

They wrote: “I came out as trans non-binary in a room full of people today. Guess it’s time for me to do that on here, too…

“Hi. I’m Bex, and the rumours are true. I’m v enby.”

‘Enby’ is another way of saying N.B., which of course stands for non-binary.

Taylor-Klaus, who has played a series of gay characters on The Killing, House of Lies and MTV’s Scream, may also be familiar to fans of Glee, who will have seen them dump spaghetti over Rachel’s head.

Their revelation was met with excitement and positivity from fans.

One wrote: “*quickly makes this a date to celebrate a year from now and so on.*

“I love you a whole bunch! Thank you for being you and existing and allowing me to walk beside you on this journey. ”

Another said: “Super proud of you, you wonderful human being. ”

A different fan wrote: ” congrats bb, proud of you! sending all the love.”

After a cute exchange, one fan said: “I’m so damn proud of you for embracing who you are.

The actor received an outpouring of love in response to her announcement (bex_tk/instagram)

“It’s all I’ll ever want for you love ❤️.”

Another wrote: “Well, you screwed up… now I just love you more.”

Amen to that.
