Actress turned politician Sheila Kuehl talks about how she came out, and then tells the story of helping fellow actor Dick Sargent come out.
“I think [Dick Sargent] was happier than I’ve seen him in a long time. Because there’s just nothing freer than being yourself....There’s something freeing about simply being fully everything you are. And I think that Dick was surprised at how positive his experience was. But I already knew it because I’d gone through it.”
