‘Sense8’ Actor Brian J. Smith Gets Loads Of Support After Coming Out As Gay
Sense8 star Brian J. Smith came out as gay yesterday, and within 24 hours he received a slew of support from fans!
“I was terrified,” Brian, who grew up near Dallas, Texas, told Attitude magazine. “At school I really couldn’t fit in anywhere. I wasn’t a jock or a nerd. Forget about any [LGBTQ+] union or groups. There was absolutely nothing. I was completely alone. I heard all the names: p—y, f—-t.”
“I could never be who I was,” he added. “I was constantly having to check myself and make sure I wasn’t looking at someone too long or making someone feel uncomfortable.”
Brian came out to his family at 30, and they responded with an overwhelming amount of love.
“I was surprised. When I came out to my parents they were wonderful,” he explained. “They said they were just waiting for me to say something. They were a lot more advanced than I gave them credit for.”
Naturally, all of Twitter was here for it!
