Following in the footsteps of Neil Patrick Harris, TR Knight, and Lance Bass, Frasier star David Hyde Pierce (who is currently appearing on Broadway in Curtains) has come out of the closet.
While Pierce did not make a formal announcement about his sexuality, the following paragraph was included in a recent AP story that appeared on CNN.com, amongst other places:
"He worked at Playwrights Horizons, the Public Theater, Shakespeare in the Park and a lot of regional theaters such as the Guthrie in Minneapolis, Chicago's Goodman and Long Wharf in New Haven, Conn. Pierce got to Los Angeles in the early 1990s when his partner, actor-writer-producer Brian Hargrove, wanted to write for television."
Good for David! So who's next?
