PICTURED: Boy Erased star Lucas Hedges holds hands with married pal Tommy Dorfman during friendly outing in NYC
Boy Erased star Lucas Hedges was seen holding hands with married 13 Reasons Why veteran Tommy Dorfman in NYC on Saturday afternoon.
The pair looked to be the best of friends as they walked hand-in-hand while kicking off summer in the city with a trot around the downtown area.
Dorfman, 29, came out as non-binary with pronouns of they/them and has been married to Peter Zurkuhlen since 2016, and Hedges, 24, has said his sexuality exists on a ‘spectrum.’

Hedges was seen in daisy duke shorts with crocodile brown heeled boots and a striped brown tank top.
He tucked his red locks underneath a bucket hat and sported tortoise shell sunglasses while carrying a tote bag in one hand, and Dorfman’s hand in the other.
And the BFF of Kaia Gerber and Cara Delevingne slipped their frame into an orange linen dress which were worn with Reebok sneakers.
They slung a purse over their body and wore blue framed wired sunglasses with their hair down and flowing.

Stepping out: Dorman came out as non-binary in 2017 with pronouns of they/them and Hedges has said that his sexuality exists on a ‘spectrum’
And as Dorfman has been married to Zurkuhlen since 2016 and recently shot a Hugo Boss campaign with him in honor of Pride, the affectionate display appeared to be purely platonic.
The acting duo have been friends for a while as Tommy celebrated their birthday with Hedges by their side and both have spoken candidly about sexuality and gender.
Tommy first came out as non-binary in 2017, and told Refinery29 that they hated the idea that clothing was ‘gendered.’
‘Growing up, I hated the idea that clothing was gendered. I identify as non-binary. I present as mostly masculine because it’s just how I feel, but I’ve never had this idea that clothing should be one thing or the other.’

And Lucas had been romantically linked to actress Taylor Russell after they starred in Waves together but said in a 2018 interview with Vulture that his sexuality exists on a ‘spectrum.’
‘In the early stages of my life, some of the people I was most infatuated with were my closest male friends. That was the case through high school, and I think I was always aware that while for the most part I was attracted to women, I existed on a spectrum,’ he shared.
He continued to say that at one point he felt ‘ashamed’ he could not pinpoint his sexuality but said he’s ‘not necessarily bisexual.’
‘I felt ashamed that I wasn’t 100 percent, because it was clear that one side of sexuality presents issues, and the other doesn’t as much. I recognize myself as existing on that spectrum: Not totally straight, but also not gay and not necessarily bisexual.’
