Kevin McHale poses at the five-year anniversary of the non-profit advocacy organization Tie The Knot supporting LGBTQ equality, at NeueHouse Hollywood on Oct. 12, 2017 in Los Angeles.

Kevin McHale wants to make sure his fans understand that he has always been himself.

The Glee star recently publicly came out as gay after the release of Ariana Grande's "No Tears Left to Cry," which he noted on Twitter was "gayer than me." He sat down with journalist Marc Malkin during a Facebook Live on Thursday (May 10), and said that his followers really shouldn't be shocked at the news.

"If somebody was a big fan and following everything I was doing [on social media], like the people I interact with on Twitter on a daily basis, I think there was zero surprise. People knew," he responded to a question of whether he was hiding his sexuality.

"The organizations I've been supporting and all that sort of work has been apparent, at least to me. I've always supported LGBT organizations and things like that because I felt like I had a vested interest in this where I wanted to help out," he continued.

McHale also mentioned that he kept his relationship with Austin McKenzie private to "protect the person I was with." Watch the full interview below.
