Garrett Clayton Makes First Public Appearance With Partner

Blake Knight and Garrett Clayton

Garrett Clayton walked the red carpet Thursday for Out magazine's Power 50 Awards — alongside his partner, Blake Knight.

Afterward, the 27-year-old actor shared the photograph on social media.

"@outmagazine#Power50 last night with my love @hrhblakeknight," Clayton wrote on Instagram in the photo's caption. He included an emoji of two men holding hands.

Clayton, his blond hair gelled in a swoop, also thanked his stylist, Gabriel Langenbrunner, in the text. The former Disney star sported a black and charcoal ensemble, which coordinated with the outfit of Knight, who wore a dark leather jacket.

A ring was also visible on Clayton's left hand.

Clayton, known for productions like Hairspray Live! and King Cobra, came out in August on Instagram. In the post, the actor discussed how his most recent film, Reach, deals with "very serious and timely topics that have affected me personally," including issues like suicide, bullying, and violence. In Reach, Clayton portrays Steven, an awkward high school kid who struggles with depression and contemplates taking his own life. 

Clayton then mentioned Knight, with whom "I’ve been in a relationship with for a long time." Knight is a writer based in Los Angeles.

The Out Power 50 Awards honored "LGBTQ influencers who shape our world." The celebration, held at NeueHouse in Hollywood and sponsored by Genesis Motors and the Trevor Project, honored YouTuber Tyler Oakley and songwriter Justin Tranter.

Matt Bomer, Gigi Gorgeous, August Getty, Nico Sanchez, Zeke Smith, Isis King, Breeda Wool, Stephen Guarino, and Kevin McHale were also in attendance.
