“Glee” star Dot-Marie Jones can only recall a handful of days where “somebody hasn’t called me sir”

Dot-Marie Jones’ performance as coach Sharon Beiste coming out as transgender on last Friday’s episode of Glee was so well-acted and written.

Jones chatted with The Advocate and said of the episode: “My biggest thing is just being respectful. The last thing I want to do is disrespect anybody in what I’m portraying, and to do it respectfully and with class, and with dignity and pride, and I could not have been prouder than I was that day [that we filmed those scenes].”

Jones, who is a lesbian, says she has been mistaken for trans in real life which she attributes to being “not the most feminine wallflower.”

In fact, she can only recall a handful of days where “somebody hasn’t called me sir.”

“It used to really strike a nerve with me, to where when I was younger, it was almost fighting words,” she says. “[But] you’ve gotta learn to love yourself and accept yourself, and then surround yourself with people that get you, and love you for who and what you are.”
