The Pitch Perfect actor opened up about his sexuality to People magazine ahead of the release of his debut solo album, Sing to Me Instead. He released a video for a song called Ease My Mind ahead of St. Valentine’s Day. It is a black-and-white romantic story between Platt and Teen Wolf actor Charlie Carver, who is also gay. The emotional black-and-white music video shows Platt and Carver as an everyday couple moving through their relationship – dancing, cuddling, kissing, loving. Platt told People magazine that the record is “a roller coaster of a relationship that is an amalgam of the ones I’ve had.” He said that music is the first opportunity for him to speak out about his relationships with all the men he used to love, and even though it might be considered his coming out, he says he had never actually been ‘in’, his family knew he was gay when he was 12 and he had seen no need in hiding it or being ashamed of this part of his personality.
