Jonathan Groff describes his first same-sex kiss, and what happened next

“I had my first kiss with this guy that I had a crush on from my hometown, who ended up being my, quote-unquote, roommate, because I wasn’t out of the closet for three and a half years. But I had my first kiss on this day…He had come over to the apartment I was living in, and that happened. And then I was like, ‘I have to go. I have to go meet [Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA) executive director] Tom Viola.’ I remember walking in and meeting him and feeling like my entire body was on fire. I was like levitating thru the offices of BC/EFA.”— Actor Jonathan Groff speaking on the Broadway Gives Back Podcast.
