TR Knight

There has been some discussion on communities that I belong to about closeted actors finally coming out, and realising that living an open and honest life is so much better than hiding behind lies and closeting and beards.

TR Knight made the brave decision to come out after co-star Isaiah Washington used a homophobic slur about him during an argument. Instead of lying his way through the incident, hiding behind PR manipulation, TR decided to stand up and proudly declare who he was, and he's received more praise for the bold move than any negative reactions. Instead it was Isaiah Washington who ended up being scorned for his actions.

I really wanted to post TR's interview on the Ellen Degeneres show, because it really moved me. Such a gentleman.

Part one:

Part two:

If only other closeted actors could take a leaf out of TR's book, and indeed Neil Patrick Harris who also stood against the PR machine and admitted his sexuality.
