garrettclayton1 I will not stand aside. I will not stay silent. I want to use what privilege I have to speak up and stand with #blacklivesmatter. If you have issues with that then please for everyone’s sake. Take a look inside yourself and take a good hard look at your values. I will not stand in success and happiness while a community I love is butchered. To my white friends, staying silent is condoning this behavior. No matter your level of influence or public power. You CAN make a difference but that also requires you to stand up and speak out.

garrettclayton1 Check out #HairsprayLive! for @andrewlloydwebber #theshowmustgoon! Hairspray Live! will be streaming on YouTube for 48 hours! At this time of racial inequality in our country THIS is the musical we all need to be watching... This was one of the most magical experiences of my life, and I couldn’t be more excited that I can relive a time with such wonderful humans. 🕺
garrettclayton1 It’s been 1 year since @hrhblakeknight asked me to marry him in Iceland on the most beautiful trip and the most beaufitul day of my life to date. I’ll never forget your face in that moment when you got down on one knee. Love, nervous, and excited (Obv, I was going to say yes) all rolled into the love of my life. Everyday with you is filled with joy and laughter. (even when we get heated every night over who has to get out of bed to turn off the hall light). .
8 years! In a little over a month it’ll be 8 years together. Those being packed full of ups and downs. (90% ups) I’ll always be thankful that you walked into my 24 hour resturant when I first moved to LA. I was a waiter aspiring to be an actor. You were an assistant aspiring to be a writer. Now look at us! Living the dream together. Finding the strength in our unity with the loss of Orion. To finding out on my birthday in the dirty parking lot behind the resturant I worked at (at that time) that I lost my first big job / cut to you holding me later that night whipping away my tears and telling me it was only the beginning. You’ve never faltered in being a supportive, loving, stubborn, sensitive rock in my life. Here’s to another 100 years of traveling the world, stealing your socks and loving our babies, whether their dog babies or actual babies. I’ll love you forever.
Happy anniversary, my darling. .
(P.s. I’m getting my scarf out of my face in the engagement photo. Not clutching my pearls)
garrettclayton1 Attention please: I’ve been getting comments on promotional shots for “Brolesque” that concern me and want to address this... I believe there are many types of beauty in this world. And I’m sure most of you would agree. My issues are the concerning comments regarding me in my costumes for “Brolesque.” Sure, they’re more feminine compared to past postings of mine. But I feel just as attractive in this basic, instaboy flexing shot as I do in that corset. My job as an actor is to explore all different types of roles, to explore all different types of life. I’ve been so fortunate so far in my career to play vastly different roles. I will never limit myself in that regard, because I see the value in variations in beauty, and I plan to explore them all. I don’t care if you’re skinny, plus size, feminine, masculine, tall, short, or anything in between or anything outside of that. I think a person is beautiful for all the different sides that make them up... To my point, I will continue to feel the same about myself. I feel just as attractive/beautiful being a sweaty, fit, flexing man as I do being all done up in my corset with a full face of makeup and dripping in pearls. If you’re only here for me to be shirtless, pushing some false, one-sided image of myself all the time on Instagram... you’re going to be sorely disappointed. In the last six months I’ve been everything from Pennywise the Clown, the Huntsman in Snow White, to now being a Tim Curry-type Xtina in “Brolesque.” Whether it’s on stage or in TV/film, in future jobs I hope I get to explore an even wider variety of characters, be it short, tall, wide, thin, masc., or fem... THEY ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL; THEY ARE ALL WORTHY. I will never limit myself, and I hope you don’t either. ♥️
