Coming out: Dorman came out as non-binary in 2017 with pronouns of them and Hedges said his sexuality exists on a “spectrum”
And since Dorfman has been married to Zurkuhlen since 2016 and recently shot a Hugo Boss campaign with him in honor of the pride, the affectionate display seemed to be purely platonic.
The acting duo have been friends for some time as Tommy celebrated his birthday with Hedges by his side and the two spoke candidly about sexuality and gender.
Tommy first appeared as non-binary in 2017 and told Refinery29 that they hated the idea of clothes being “gendered”.
“Growing up, I hated the idea of clothes being gendered. I identify myself as non-binary. I present as mostly masculine because that’s just how I feel, but I never had this idea that clothes should be one thing or another. ‘

And Lucas had been romantically linked to actress Taylor Russell after starring together in Waves, but said in an interview with Vulture in 2018 that his sexuality exists on a “spectrum.”
“At the beginning of my life, some of the people I was most in love with were my closest male friends. That was the case in high school, and I think I’ve always been aware that while for the most part I was drawn to women, I existed on a spectrum, ” he shared.
He went on to say that at one point he was “ashamed” that he could not identify his sexuality, but said he was “not necessarily bisexual”.
“I was ashamed that I was not 100% because it was clear that one side of sexuality had problems and the other not as much. I recognize myself as existing on this spectrum: not totally straight, but not gay either and not necessarily bisexual.
