My interview with Sean Maher, the handsome actor who came out while starring on “The Playboy Club”

photoIt’s one thing for a famous actor to come out, but it’s quite another when their doing so brings me to tears.
I read Sean Maher’s interview with Entertainment Weekly and found it interesting and moving. But it was the action on his Twitter account that gave me the lump in my throat which gave way to tears.
People were so supportive and just showering the 36-year-old actor with Twitter love. I watched it happening in real time and thought, ‘He must feel so good right now – so glad he went public!’
He did tweet that night: ‘Desperately want to respond to all of you. Please know that I am reading each and every one of your tweets. So emotional. Love to you all! … I can’t possibly express how overwhelmed I feel by all of the love and support. Truly amazing. From the bottom of my heart I thank you.’
When I met Sean at the LA Gay and Lesbian Center gala in November, he was such a sweet guy and still seemed so moved by all the love that had come his way since coming out.
‘I am still hearing from people who were inspired by my story and came out to their parents,’ he told me. ‘I’ve also been getting some old-fashioned fan mail from people that brought me to tears – their stories so inspire me.’
