Openly Gay- How 'The Good Doctor' Actor Came Out?
In June 2016, during an interview with Vulture, Noah stated that he first opened up about his sexuality to his mother at the age of 13. As the American actor mentioned, he talked about coming out to his mama, as she would ask him, "Are you gay?" over series of months. Finally, Galvin admitted, and she was very supportive.
Moreover, Noah Galvin stated a moment of confusion about his sexuality at some point, before he 'made a decision for self that he was gay.' Reportedly, while at school, he fell in love with a girl while working on a play and dated for 3-4 months, until one day, on his best friend's advice, the actor confessed to her, "Listen I think I'm gay."
Later, they became friends and are still to date.
While in a 2016 interview with Vulture, Galvin made a comment which became quite offensive when asked about the disclosure of Colton Haynes. Moreover, his thoughts about the LGBTQ culture in Hollywood drew attention after he talked about Eric Stonestreet's performance as Cameron Tucker, a bubbly gay person in Morden Family, stating it lacked authenticity.
Later, Noah made an apology for those statements.
Noah Galvin's Boyfriend- Who Is He Dating?
Although in 2016, The Good Doctor actor admitted seeing two guys (one 24 and another 38) and added that he was dating for the first time. However, the exact details about his then-boyfriends never got enlightenment.
But in May 2020, during the Little Known Facts With Ilana Levine podcast, Galvin confirmed that he is dating The Politician star, Ben Platt. And it was after a year, on June 9, 2021, the gay actor opened much further about his relationship with Platt on The Kelly Clarkson Show.
Reportedly, they knew each other for five years after Booksmart star Molly Gordon introduced them. Although they did a costume for Halloween 2019, it was until 2020 when the duo started dating. Noah said:
"I recently entered into a relationship...with my boyfriend, Noah Galvin. We’ve been together a year-and-a-half now. We were friends for five years, and right before the pandemic, we finally decided to really give it a shot."
As for a fact, both of them have portrayed Evan Hansen in the Tony-winning musical Dear Evan Hansen, passed down from Platt (who originated the role in 2016) to Noah (who took the role in 2017).
But no doubt, it's a coincidence, that they are not the only gay couple to have worked on the same Broadway production; Taylor Trensch and Ben Levi Ross who are now a couple, both portrayed Evans Hansen.
They are frequent mentions of each other on their respective Instagram; currently, Noah has 250K followers on his Instagram (@noahegalvin) while Ben has 1.7 million followers (@bensplatt).
