Jack Falahee, who plays gay law student Connor Walsh on the ABC hit drama How To Get Away With Murder, won't discuss his personal life.

Falahee's steamy sex scenes have received plenty of attention – negative and positive – but in an Out cover story, the 25-year-old says it's all in a day's work.

“I'm glad that it is a big deal – it's a huge deal – but you don't think about that when you go to work,” Falahee said.

Falahee was less forthcoming when asked about his personal life.

“I don't think answering who I'm sleeping with accomplishes anything other than quenching the thirst of curiosity. And moreover, it seems reductive,” he said.

“It's been really interesting to be in the middle of the industry's fascination with the individual, because I never thought about that growing up or when I was at acting school. No matter how I answer, someone will say, 'No, that’s not true.'”

“We still live in this hetero-normative, patriarchal society that is intent on placing everything within these binaries. I really hope that – if not in my lifetime, my children's lifetime – this won't be a question, that we won't need this.”

In voicing his support for LGBT rights, Falahee mentioned Leelah Alcorn, the Ohio transgender teen who committed suicide after her parents sent her to therapy to alter her gender identity.

“I've lost friends to suicide, a few of whom were closeted and didn't have anywhere to turn,” he said. “It pains my heart. Look at this young woman Leelah Alcorn. She didn't think she could be who she wanted to be – who she was – and it's fucking awful. Now that I'm in a position where people are curious about what I have to say about things, I would like to help.”
