'Grey's Anatomy' star T.R. Knight has revealed that not everyone was pleased when he decided to come out.
In an interview with The Advocate, Knight explains that while many friends were "beautifully supportive," others warned him not to come out.
"Don't do it now," they said, as they were afraid it might jeopardize his career.
But Knight says, "I could have not [spoken up]. I could have retreated. But I'm definitely happy I made the decision."
Knight publicly came out after fellow castmate Isaiah Washington was caught making homophobic slurs on set. Knight came out to People last October, saying, "I hope the fact that I'm gay isn't the most interesting part of me."
