We've all heard the tales: there are major stars in Hollywood who remain in the closet - even in 2021 - for fear that their careers will be damaged beyond repair should they live out and proud. Who's advising them to do so? Is it true? In this candid discussion among actors who have been through the public coming out process - and talent who've maybe always been out in the public eye -- over the past few decades, we'll explore the changing landscape of television, how the fear of outing can still persist in a time of unprecedented visibility, and how these fierce talents continue to carve a path of success despite the perception that it simply wasn't possible.

Featured Talent: Paris Barclay (director/producer, Station 19), Jake Borelli (Grey’s Anatomy), Ronen Rubinstein (9-1-1: Lone Star), Gina Yashere (Bob Hearts Abishola), Alexandra Grey (MacGyver)
