High School Musical star Joshua Bassett speaks about the first time he realized he was queer.
Joshua Bassett, known from “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”, thrilled and amazed fans when he casually came out as queer a few weeks ago. The fans asked themselves all the more what was really going on between him and fellow actor Sabrina Carpenter.

Bassett and Rodrigo had something with each other, but the actor is said to have started something with Carpenter by now.
