Jesse Tyler Ferguson
"It was never an issue ... I never felt 'in' so it didn't feel like it was terribly difficult to be 'out.' Good actors come from a place of truth and to me it just felt like I needed to have my cards on the table. It wouldn't have felt comfortable for me to be hiding a piece of myself."-(Winnipeg Free Press)
