Grey’s Anatomy gay TR Knight took another trip to Ellen’s set yesterday. Knight spent some time promoting his show and chatting about the Emmy and his dog (awww), but he also chatted about life since coming out. Of the nig gay event Knight says, “I feel I’ve learned so much this past year, so, I’m grateful for that, so yeah, that changes you.”
Now that he’s out, Ellen wonders, how does young Knight feel about other closeted queers?
Everyone has their own path. You just have to respect that. I don’t know what it’s like to be in their shoes. I know a lot of people who make statements, but you have to do it when it’s right for you. It don’t think it’s right to force that. It’s impossible to know … There’s a lot of soul searching you have to do.
Yes – or, there’s a lot of “waiting for anti-gay co-star to out me” to do.
