Best known for playing Beck Oliver in the hit Nickelodeon series, Avan Jogia has quietly updated their pronouns to he/they on TikTok (@avan.jogia) and Instagram (@jogia). The actor also shared a TikTok video with an audio tag that says the following: "I'm a male, I'm a man, I'm a he. I don't get into that mentally ill stuff."
In the caption for the video, though, Jogia wrote:
"Not that he honestly and if I'm being real? I probably get into that mentally ill stuff..."
Different viewers can draw different conclusions from Jogia's cryptic TikTok video and its caption. At this point, it's irresponsible to claim that the actor has "come out" in regard to any sexual orientation or gender identity.
However, Jogia did update pronouns to he/they on both Instagram and TikTok - that much is clear for anyone to see.

Over the course of his career, Jogia has appeared in films like Zombieland: Double Tap, Shaft, and Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. He's also gone on to star on TV shows such as Tut, Ghost Wars, and Now Apocalypse.
In fact, Jogia played a queer main character named Ulysses on Starz's Now Apocalypse who gave us plenty of thirsty scenes like a kiss between Ulysses and Ford (played by Beau Mirchoff).
Though it is unclear how Jogia identifies, let it be known that their pronouns are currently he/they.
