GLAAD PSAs debut
on Coming Out Day

T.R. Knight will be the focus of a 20-second PSA, which will be released for National Coming Out Day, October 11.

Grey's Anatomy star T.R. Knight is asking the public to be tolerant of those who come out to them as gay. Knight is the focus of an upcoming 20-second public service announcement from the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, which will begin airing on National Coming Out Day, October 11.

The PSA's debut comes just days before the one-year anniversary of Knight's own public coming-out, which was prompted by a series of incidents in which former Anatomy costar Isaiah Washington used an antigay slur in referring to him.

"More and more gay people like T.R. are living their lives openly and honestly," GLAAD president Neil G. Giuliano said in a press release. "T.R.'s coming-out has had tremendous impact in terms of creating awareness, understanding, and acceptance."

The spot is part of GLAAD's new "Be an Ally and a Friend" campaign featuring 22 entertainers from television, film, and sports. The spots encourage tolerance and urge an end to homophobia, directing viewers to (The Advocate)
