Darren Criss & Girlfriend Mia Swier Couple Up for Halloween with Nolan Funk!

Darren Criss and his girlfriend Mia Swier are all dressed up while walking the carpet at WhoSay’s Here Come the Boos Halloween Party held on Thursday (October 29) in New York City.

The couple was joined at the event by the 28-year-old actor’s former Glee co-star Nolan Funk.

Darren recently opened up to Advocate about why LGBT causes are so important to him.

“For me it was self-implicit. I was lucky enough [on Glee] to have a role that was a beacon for the gay community and it was a privilege and an honor to be part of it,” Darren said. “I personally care about it because I was left-handedly raised by the gay community.”

“I grew up backstage in the theatre with gay guys in their 20s and 30s who looked after me, bought me meals, and drove me home,” he added. “So I have a conscious and unconscious affection for the gay community. I was lucky enough to be part of it.”
