Transgender star Alexis Arquette has chastised Neil Patrick Harris and T.R. Knight, two celebrities who recently came out as gay, for their unwillingness to speak about their sexuality at a gay fund-raiser.
According to USA Today, Harris and Knight avoided the press after attending an event for the Los Angeles suicide prevention hotline organization the Trevor Project. Harris said that he was advised by his PR firm not to be too vocal about his recent coming-out.
"People like that are weak; it's pathetic," Arquette said in response.
Arquette's sister Patricia said that she understands the two men's decisions not to come out to the press so readily.
"It's never easy to come out," she said. "It's a very brave thing. I was terrified for Alexis, with all the cruelty in the world, that he would be taunted, teased, or beaten." (The Advocate)
