Sean Hayes: 'I Always Felt I Owed the Gay Community an Apology for Coming Out Too Late'

Sean Hayes tells the L.A. Times that early controversy over his Will and Grace character Jack McFarland being "too gay" made him go back into the closet with the media:

HayesI was so young. It made me go back in the closet [with the media] because I was so overwhelmed at 26 or 27. I didn't want the responsibility, I didn't know how to handle the responsibility of speaking for the gay community. I always felt like I owed them a huge apology for coming out too late. Some people in the gay community were very upset with me for not coming out on their terms. They don't stop to think about what's going on in somebody's personal life, and the struggles that they're having. It was all very scary. We got death threats. It was a really rough time for me, but I was also having the time of my life.

Hayes eventually came out publicly in March 2010.

Sean Hayes: No Heavy Gay Messaging in My New Sitcom

Hayes

Sean Hayes insists his new sitcom Sean Saves the World, about a single gay dad raising a teen daughter, won't be message-driven like The New Normal:

“Absolutely not. If that’s a byproduct of their viewing experience, fantastic. But it’s definitely not in the forefront of our minds when creating this show week-to-week. It’s making people laugh and telling great stories. I think with me playing a gay dad, the gay part should be the fifth most interesting thing about the character. It definitely doesn’t need to be focused on that just like in real life. So if it’s groundbreaking for being extra funny, great. But there is no agenda here other than to be funny.”

Our TV writer Bobby Hankinson talks about Hayes's new show in his column, Five New Shows to Watch and Five to Skip This Fall. Check it out HERE.

Seansavesworld

When you flip on your television this fall, you’ll encounter significantly less LGBT characters than last season. After a record-setting 2012-2013 season in terms on LGBT representation on television, many of last year’s prominent series featuring gay characters -- including Happy Endings, The New Normal, Smash, Partners and Southland -- will not be returning.

Despite those losses, there are still exciting LGBT stories being told on new and returning programs. We’ve collected eight of the most buzzed-about comedies, dramas and reality programs showcasing LGBT personalities this fall.
