Moises Arias: Quirky, Androgynous, Gay-Positive
He made many other appearances on the Disney Channel, including starring with buddy Jake T. Austin twice, in The Perfect Game (2009) and in a 2009 story arc on The Wizards of Waverly Place (he played Max's disembodied Conscience).
Growing up and getting buffed, Moises could have gone the teen idol route, but instead he opted for quirky characters in quirky comedies or dramedies:
Quicktime in We the Party (2012), about teenagers interested in "romance, money, prom, college, sex, bullies, Facebook, fitting in, standing out, and finding themselves."
The Kings of Summer (2013).
He wrote, directed, and starred in Brothers in Arms (2012), about two brothers who must adjust to being separated when one is drafted into the army (played by his real life brother, Mateo Arias of the Disney Channel's Kickin' It).
Jake T. Austin's posse, and playing androgynous characters, there has naturally been some speculation on whether Moises is gay in real life.
Being the bff of Jaden Smith has fueled speculation.
He appears to have a girlfriend with whom he's "madly in love," so probably heterosexual. But definitely gay-friendly.
