After inspiring so many fans as Cyrus Goodman, Disney Channel’s first-ever openly gay character, Joshua Rush is opening up about his own sexuality in the best way possible!

The 17-year-old actor took to Twitter this morning with a series of tweets where he candidly identifies as bisexual, and then explained that it’s because of “Andi Mack” viewers that he found the courage to know who he is and share that self with the world.

Josh also encouraged his followers to donate to GLAAD and The Trevor Project, two organizations helping young LGBTQ+ voices feel heard, and reminded those reading that even though he’s “out and proud,” being bi is only one part of who he is. We couldn’t be prouder of the inspiring “News in a Rush” teen!

“I stuffed the existential crisis of talking about my sexual orientation into a box in my mind for years. Today, I release it into the world,” he wrote on Twitter.

In case you missed it, this is how our favorite stars celebrated Pride this year!
