Stephen Campbell has finally put the speculation about his sexuality to rest. The “Can We Talk” singer has opened up about identifying as a gay man. In a new interview with the PEOPLE Everyday podcast, he said, “What makes me happiest now is how far I’ve progressed in life. You know, there are a lot of child stars who don’t make that. But a lot of us do…and the fact that I’ve embraced me.”

In addition, the singer also revealed that throughout his early years in the music industry, he never concealed his identity from those around him. “I didn’t hide anything from me. I didn’t try to act a certain way or anything.”

“You just can’t be [gay] At the time.” Tiffin, who also has acting chops and spent six years performing in the Broadway musical “Hairspray” beginning in 2004, credits this experience with much of his growth.” When I went out to my family and friends [at] About 19 or 20, that was for me. Then I took the path of discovering myself. I didn’t know who I was.”

The singer also explained that he has never seen LGBTQ+ people lead normal lives with partners. “It was an amazing time in my life,” he added. During the conversation, tiffin frankly posed like black stars like Frank Ocean And the Lil Nas X. “It wasn’t like that in the ’90s,” he says with a laugh. “But I’m glad I saw it. I’m glad that’s changing. There are a lot of kids, especially black boys, who need to see acting.”
