Ever since Glee’s “Never Been Kissed” episode aired last week and introduced newcomer Darren Criss, people everywhere are asking, “Is Darren Criss Straight?”
The answer? Yes, Darren Criss is straight. In a recent Vanity Fair interview, Darren Criss described his days growing up and said, “I had straight parents, but I spent massive amounts of time at a very early age with gay, theater-hopeful thirty-somethings. And those were the people I spent time with early on, so my whole perception of “sexuality” just wasn’t there. It just…was.”
Criss also added, “It’s been a secret too long, but I’m actually a straight male.”
Darren Criss captured our hearts singing Teenage Dream on Glee last week, and we can’t wait to see what he brings us in future episodes!
