Straight Man Who Randomly Stumbled Across WeHo Pride Goes Viral For His Chill Reaction

Influencer Chris Stanley's interview with 'Bachelorette Australia' star Timm Hanly, who stumbled across WeHo Pride and stayed 'for the vibes,' has LGBTQ+ fans cheering.

What an interesting second day in America!

Australian reality TV star Timm Hanly was recently approached by street interviewer Chris Stanley as he went through the West Hollywood (WeHo) Pride festival this month. Hanly appeared on The Bachelorette Australia in 2019 and Bachelor in Paradise in 2020.


His chill responses to questions helped his interview make the cut to publication, and propelled it to viral status in the LGBTQ+ community.

Hanly, who clarified early on in the interview that he was "not gay, straight," was in L.A. on vacation and stumbled across the WeHo pride festival, staying "for the vibes." Off to a good start!

When asked how he felt when gay men found him attractive, Hanly perked up and grabbed the mic to answer the question.

Oh, I love this. Let’s say I’m walking down the street and a gay guy is like looking at me. That’s as good as a girl looking at me. That counts. That’s as good for my ego as a hot chick looking at me. Not that I’m here for that. That’s just how you’ve gotta take it, you know?”

Equal opportunity compliments for Timm, then.


People were really here for the energy Hanly was putting off.

Really, though, he might just be...Australian about the whole thing.

Here's hoping that the rest of their time in the U.S. was as exciting for Hanly and his family as their second day.
