Colton Haynes Gets Emotional While Accepting LGBT Visibility Award (VIDEO)

Just three months after publicly coming out, Arrow and Teen Wolf star Colton Haynes accepted an LGBT Visibility Award from the Human Rights Campaign.

The 28-year-old actor became emotional while accepting the honor at a gala in Seattle on August 27, expressing his belief that he wasn’t worthy of the award. He fought back tears during his speech.

“I’m asked to play so many different roles as an actor,” he declared. “Tonight, I can actually be myself. It feels incredible.”

Colton is a great role model, and his message of love, acceptance and strength is one of the most moving things I’ve seen in a while. This was a downright inspiring speech, and it made me like Colton even more than I do already. I’m legit sitting here, proud of a guy I don’t even know. Bravo, Colton.
