Actor Jack Falahee on Tuesday announced that he's not gay.

The 27-year-old Falahee plays law student Connor Walsh on the ABC drama How to Get Away with Murder. Walsh has had an on-again-off-again relationship with Oliver Hampton (played by Conrad Ricamora).

In the past, Falahee has refused to discuss his sexuality.

Falahee declared himself an ally, not a member, of the LGBT community in a series of tweets.

“While I'm not gay, on HTGAWM I play a character who's in an interracial relationship with an HIV positive man,” Falahee wrote. “However, in the past I've declined to discuss my own sexuality in an attempt to try and dismantle the closet.”

“I feel that I've sacrificed my ability to support the community for a more theoretical discussion about sexuality. Now more than ever, I want to offer my support to the community as an ally.”

Falahee said that the election of Donald Trump motivated him to speak out.

“We now have a VP who believes in conversion therapy, that homosexuality is a choice and that marriage equality will lead to societal collapse,” he wrote about Vice President-elect Mike Pence. “We have a VP who doesn't believe that my [gay] friend should have the same rights as me, and that's scary.”

Falahee vowed to support the LGBT community and engage in “direct action more than once every 4 years.”
