  1. Bravo to her – I get so frustrated when public figures (and commentators on here) come along and tell others how they should live their life. How and when to come out is a deeply personal choice that should be left down to the individual to decide when.

    Unless, of course, they are a public figure who on the one hand decries homosexuality and seeks the restriction of LGBT rights and on the other gets busy with rent boys or whatever. They deserve to be outed and very, very publicly.

    1. Completely agree! :)

      Ditto that.

  2. She’s a brilliant actress and has done very well for herself.

    She’s humble aswell and won’t just dish out opinions as others sometimes do.
    No one can tell someone else to come out, it’s for them to decide when is the right time.

  3. Great comments and I admire her so much for sharing them.

  4. When I came out of the closet the Christians attacked me and have been persecuting me ever since, they even got me fired from my job and now they are trying to run me out of town. Where can people like me get help? I called the police but they said they could do nothing, but then again they were also Christians. The Christians are starting to make the Taliban look good. Are they going back to burning gays at the stake?

      Where do you live? Uganda?

    Peoples circumstances are different. People may chose to come out to their friends and family but not to their work mates. It also depends on where you live. You wouldn’t want to come out in Tehran or even (K)Camp-ala in Uganda.

    Living in these places- tehran, uganda, nigeria as a gay is trouble, coming out is suicide althogether. Am Nigerian by the way and gay as well. @ lynch great word of advice.
