The actress and activist came out in 2014 during her speech at HRCF’s Time to Thrive Conference.

She told the crowd,

“I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission. I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I’m standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain.”
