Glee star Kevin McHale recently announced that he is gay, and it seems that a song by Ariane Grande helped him make the decision to come out of the closet. Grande's newest single, No Tears Left to Cry, pushed McHale to use the title and make an announcement. He took to Twitter to share his thoughts and said,"NoTearsLeftToCry is gayer than me and I ACCEPT. Ty @ArianaGrande."

Many fans and followers have been curious about the stars personal life ever since he started to share photographs of himself with someone who many assume to be his boyfriend on social media. Many were supportive and sent words of love and encouragement to the actor. 

"That's such an adorable pic! I'm so very happy for you @kevinmchale and wish you both all the best and lots of happiness!" one fan wrote. Another fan tweeted, "Y'all have no clue how much I am living for this coming out if that's what it is," No heartfelt speeches, just normalcy. Isn't it refreshing?"

The star also had a special request for Ariana Grande. "I'd like to request a remix with @JanetJackson. ty for ur time. @ArianaGrande."

The actor starred on the musical series 'Glee' as Artie Abrams for about six seasons. This is the first time that he is addressing his sexuality amidst rumors that he is seeing actor Austin McKenzie. Earlier last week, it looked as though he had confirmed their romance when he shared a photograph of himself and McKenzie cuddling together. The photograph was uploaded with the hashtag #mycoachella in the caption.

The two actors starred together in ABC's eight-part miniseries 'When We Rise' which is centered around the gay rights movement over the past 45 years. McHale played the role of the AIDS activist Bobbi Campbell.
