While it’s hard to imagine now that Beemer would be doing anything other than modeling and television, his first job was as blue collar as you can get.

Like many on daytime television, Brandon Beemer is a supporter of LGBTQ. And he isn’t a “Johnny Come Lately” to the cause.

Back in 2009, he appeared as a poster model for the NoH8 initiative in California. While Prop 8 passed, it ultimately led to a political earthquake in the LGBTQ community, ultimately helping pave the way for marriage equality by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015.

Before he was on Days of Our Lives, Brandon used to be on CBS’s The Bold and The Beautiful. In fact, he was on the show from 2008-2012 in his role as Owen Knight.

A refreshing attribute in an age where so many celebs use whatever excuse they can to grab headlines.
