ALEX NEWELL Openly gay in real life, Newell was cast in the role of Wade 'Unique' Adams, a male to female transgender teen, who expressed her female identity through music. Now pursuing a career as a solo recording artist, the 23 year old maintains his fearless exploration of gender in this new video, where we see him getting dressed up to throw a party for his friends at DiMarco's house. It's a fitting role for the handsome model too, since he gave us all a glimmer of hope by describing his sexuality as 'fluid' in 2015. The model and actor - who has been deaf since birth - is currently setting pulses racing with his shirtless performances on Dancing With The Stars in the U.S. NYLE DANCING As an actor, he has appeared in the ABC show Switched At Birth, and is also set to appear in Difficult People alongside Billy Eichner.
