Personal Quotes
They wouldn't even let me do certain interviews. I remember getting an interview request from "The Advocate" after we made "Jimmy Dean" and they told me I absolutely couldn't speak with a gay magazine, even though I was playing a gay character. I think they were scared I would say something about my sexuality, and they were probably right.

I remember my first manager came to my house, went to my closet, and told me what I could and couldn't wear. All the things I could wear, she threw them on the floor in the closet and said, 'This is the way normal boys dress. They wear wrinkled and dirty clothes. And the other things you really love? Don't wear them.' (On how he was put in a closet in Hollywood by others.)

I found out on my 40th birthday and three days later I was in the hospital. But because of the infections I had, they made me take tuberculosis medicine and that didn't mix with those older HIV meds. There were so many side effects. It was like I was poisoned. I almost died there, but thankfully my friends took me to an AIDS health clinic, which saved my life. (On his diagnosis with HIV, thrush, pneumonia, and tuberculosis.)

When I started working in New York, I didn't have the common sense to keep my sexuality a secret. I wasn't famous. I was just a kid going to auditions for commercials and stuff. In New York I would go out to gay bars and it was no big deal, but in Los Angeles, I was told I wasn't allowed to step foot in West Hollywood because agents would post people in the L.A. gay bars so they could sabotage the career of any actor who competed with one of their clients. It was very cutthroat. (On the homophobia in Hollywood.)

I had a rough time in school. I was a very pretty boy and where I come from everyone looks exactly the same. If you're even the slightest bit different you're a target. I was a hypersensitive kid and I was bullied quite a bit.
