"I grew up in Clovis, California. It’s a very, very Conservative, you know, Republicans everywhere type town. For as long as I can remember, one of the biggest political issues in our country currently is gay marriage and all that type of stuff… I recently went back for a visit and I still saw, even though the election was almost a year ago, there was still signs that said "Yes on Prop 8, Ban Gay Marriage" still in people’s front yards. And you know, people there weren’t just harassed when I was growing up, they were killed for being gay. So my first reaction was, "Oh my God, I’m going to be gay on network television. That’s terrifying." But now there’s been so much great material and so much hope… I was a little scared at first, but now I’m so happy and I’m so proud of the stuff that’s been on the show. I think it maybe was a way for me to rebel against that whole way, is, "Fine. You said it was wrong when I was growing up? Well now I’m gonna be that on TV and, you know, I’m probably gonna be the face for gay rights for the rest of my life!"
