Harris Dickinson Opens Up About Sexuality at 'Beach Rats' Premiere

Harris Dickinson is opening about the impact of his new film Beach Rats.

The British actor shared his thoughts while at the premiere of the flick with his co-stars Frank Hakaj, Dave Ivanov, Anton Selyaninov and Madeline Weinstein during the Sundance Film Festival on Monday night (January 23) at Eccles Center Theatre in Park City, Utah.

“Going into it, I wasn’t sure…what statement about sexuality it would make. I feel like I’ve gained an extreme amount of empathy for that struggle and I feel like I’ve understood more so the relationship between sexuality and class and where you live – if you’re living in a masculine environment or a traditional environment,” Harris explained.

Beach Rats follows a teenage boy in New York as he navigates questions of self-identity, while balancing his time between his delinquent friends, a potential new girlfriend, and older men he meets online.

    Just viewed the movie Beach Rats and as soon as he appeared on screen, my ‘gaydar’ pinged like crazy! (even before his first sex scene with a guy). According to one blog he is in a relationship with some young actress, so maybe he swings both ways?
