Joel Grey, 82-Year-Old Broadway Star Comes Out As Gay

Posted in: , , ,

82-year-old Joel Grey, an award winning broadway actor, has publicly announced that he is gay. Grey was married to actress Jo Wilder for 24 years and they have two children together: actress Jennifer Grey and son James, a chef. The Oscar- and Tony-winning actor tells People magazine,

"I don't like labels, but if you have to put a label on it, I'm a gay man. All the people close to me have known for years who I am. [Yet] it took time to embrace that other part of who I always was.”

His daughter Jennifer Grey, who is best known for her role in movie Dirty Dancing, and who was also on Dancing with the Stars is supportive of her father. She says;

‘I feel very happy for my dad that he has come to a point in his life where he feels safe and comfortable enough to declare himself in a public way as a gay man. Mostly because the more people are free to own their true nature and can hopefully come closer to love and accept themselves as they really are, no matter what age, no matter how long it takes, to finally be free of the lies or half-truths, it is freedom.’
