’9-1-1: Lone Star’ actor Ronen Rubinstein comes out publicly: “I fully identify as bisexual”

He plays Rob Lowe’s gay son on the hit FOX drama 9-1-1: Lone Star and now actor Ronen Rubinstein has come out in real life.

“I fully identify as bisexual,” Rubinstein says in an interview with Variety. “I literally just got goosebumps saying that. It feels so good to talk about it, it feels so good to finally be comfortable with it.”

Rubinstein called his awakening “a journey” that was enabled by his work as an actor.

“The biggest thing for me is where I come from, it’s like people like me and people who have identified as bisexual or gay or as any part of the community, you’re just not welcomed. It’s as brutally honest as that,” he says. “It’s either you faced insane amounts of profanity, like the F-word was thrown around all the time or you would get your ass kicked if you were gay. So there was definitely a fear of sort of embracing how I felt. I was definitely more aware of it in high school. I was aware of my feelings and how I started looking at men, but I couldn’t talk to anybody about it.”

The actor has a girlfriend and says he decided to go public because “I want people to know that this is a hopeful and a happy story. I want people to know that they’re not alone and it’s definitely okay. Trust me, I know that it is not easy. My path has not been easy at all, but it’s just one more thing that I can share with people to help them and let them know that I’m here for them.”

2 Remarks

  1. I have seen him act on the show and trust me some of those same-sex scenes are too real. It just pinged gay. I didn’t know if it was good acting or what. Those kissing scenes are more like two gay guys, not two straight guys trying to act. Too real. Love the show. Just think Rob’s two adult sons are about the same age.

  2. This dude invented the word ‘gorgeous’. xxx
