‘He was 27 and had the world at his feet,’ she wrote. ‘But sadly he struggled with mental illness and addiction. A brilliant spark shone bright too short a time… I will miss you, Harry, every day of my life.’


Garry’s last Instagram post was a celebratory New Year’s Eve photo with a female friend.

He wrote in the caption: ‘To 2020! The new era has already begun. So let’s all keep only moving forward, staying so present to enjoy each and every moment throughout this beautiful new beginning. Happy New Year, peeps. So much love and gratitude for all in my life.’


In a March 2019 interview with Boys by Girls magazine, Harry identified as gender fluid. The article referred to Harry using ‘he’ and ‘him’ pronouns.


‘I know that I am born male but I don’t think I represent what it means to be a man,’ he said.

‘I believe we should be whatever we want. It gets kind of confusing when we start labelling ourselves so I try to stay away from labels.


‘I grew up in Melbourne and I had a very open and accepting family. Dating someone of either sex didn’t make a difference to me.’


A funeral service for Harry Hains will be held at the Hollywood Forever cemetery in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 12.
