Actor Justice Smith ‘comes out’ as queer

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom actor Justice Smith has ‘come out’ as queer in a passionate post about the Black Lives Matter movement.

The 24 year old took to Instagram on Friday and stressed the need for black, queer people to be part of the ongoing protests against racial injustice.

In the same post, he revealed he is dating Queen Sugar actor Nicholas L. Ashe.

“@nckash and I protested today in New Orleans. We chanted ‘Black Trans Lives Matter’ ‘Black Queer Lives Matter’ ‘All Black Lives Matter,’” Justice wrote. “As a black queer man myself, I was disappointed to see certain people eager to say Black Lives Matter, but hold their tongue when Trans/Queer was added.

“I want to reiterate this sentiment: if your revolution does not include Black Queer voices, it is anti-black.”

He continued: “The revolution is not about appeal. It is about demanding what should have been given to us from the beginning. What should have been given to black, queer, and trans individuals from the beginning. Which is the right to exist. To live and prosper in public. Without fear of persecution or threat of violence.”
