Carver revealed he was gay on January 11 in a five-part Instagram post, saying, “So now, let the record show this- I self-identify as gay. And does that really matter anymore? As a young man, I needed a young man in Hollywood to say that- and without being a dick about it, I owe it to myself, more than anything, to be who I needed when I was younger.”
“I’ve known,” Posey said when King told him about Carver’s announcement. “That’s so great man, I had no idea [he came out].”
“What does that mean anymore to come out?” King asks. “Who cares?”
Then Posey shared a heartwarming story about the visible signs of progress happening all around us.
“I think it’s getting easier and easier to do for people,” Posey said. “The other day I was driving by these two kids wearing backpacks, in high school, and they were holding hands, boys, and I loved it. It was so cool, man. I really dug it.”
