Anthony Rapp on coming out to Dad.
"What's ironic to me about being on the cover is that I have never actually come out as a gay man," Rapp wrote for the magazine. "I've been publicly out only by virtue of the fact that I've thanked my various boyfriends in my bios for plays I've been in."
Rapp came out to his mother at 18 by telling her he loved a man named Keith. "I wanted her to be happy for me being in love," he said. Instead, "she was confused and hurt and saddened, as was I by her reaction. I spent the next seven years trying different ways to get her to understand and accept and love me as I am."
