Echo Kellum Gay

Echo Kellum’s character in Arrow didn’t stand out for its superhero skills but for the fact that he is gay, a married one at that. His character Curtis Holt/Mister Terrific is loosely based on the DC Comic Universe character, Michael Holt. Unlike in the original comics, is being reffered as  Mr. Terrific for he is an openly gay and happily married to a man named Paul, which is perhaps a gender-swapped version of Michael Holt’s wife named Paula in the original comics. The change in the sexuality of the character was enough to raise eyebrows as well as stir up interest in his own real-life sexuality.

As often the case when actors play a homosexual character in films and TV shows, many viewers began to wonder if he could be gay in real life. In a bid to find answers, viewers have taken to online search engines and consequently, searched phrases regarding his sexuality. For example; “Is he is really gay”, “Is he Married”, and “Does his have a girlfriend” are top among searches relating to the Chicago native. Height conducted a research and discovered that he summoned the courage to play a gay superhero role, he is actually straight in real life.

How did we know? Well, while it is true that the actor hasn’t spoken about his real-life sexuality (he is actually of the opinion that his Arrow character’s sexual orientation is the “Fifth-Most Interesting Thing About Him!” ), a trip to his social media pages, especially Instagram, reveals that he is in a romantic relationship with someone who is a “she” and not a “he”.
