The 36-year-old performer, who shares a YouTube channel with his husband—musician Blue Hamilton—was answering questions from the audience and he could not avoid mentioning the TV series that made him famous, especially noting that the producers told him not to come out as gay in public as it might have cost him his acting career. I went through a period of being single for a long time because I was afraid to even date,” the actor said in the video statement, adding that he had to attend every public event with a female companion as he was told that otherwise he would not be successful. The actor said he regrets taking that advice—even if he does not know how it would have affected his career—as those words were in fact much bigger obstacle to his success than coming out. “I wish I had not taken that advice,” he said, adding: “Because of the advice that was given to me to stay in the closet, I became very disconnected from who I was, and there’s a lot of residual stuff that to this day that I still deal with where I find myself [thinking] ‘oh, I sound too gay’ or ‘I’m acting too gay’ because it was so drilled into my brain,” he said
