Coming out of the closet was just what the doctor ordered for "Grey's Anatomy" star T.R. Knight.
The television actor was forced to admit his homosexuality publicly when his co-star, Isaiah Washington, used an anti-gay slur against him during an on-set argument. The issue raised the profile of T.R., Isaiah and the hit show. However, there were also some personal issues for T.R to sort through.
He told the latest issue of The Advocate magazine, a publication specifically for homosexuals, "I remember saying to someone when I got one of those 'don't do it' [comments] - I just remember hearing my voice being calm and saying, 'No, it's going happen. It's going to happen. I'm just letting you know.' I made the decision to make a statement. I could have not [spoken up]. I could have retreated. But I'm definitely happy I made the decision."
T.R. revealed his sexual preference via a statement in PEOPLE magazine. He has since talked about his hardships with other gay icons such as Ellen DeGeneres.
