Tuesday, July 14, 2009 - 6:18pm by Rich Ferraro, Vice President of Communications
GLAAD reached out to Todd Holland following his statements at Outfest. Todd requested to clarify his remarks and asked that GLAAD distribute the following statement on his behalf:
As an openly gay man in Hollywood, I know firsthand the tremendous challenges that people throughout the industry face in terms of being open about who they are. For people who know me, they know that I believe it’s important for people to live openly and authentically, and I am sorry for my poorly chosen words at Outfest. At the end of the day, I hope my comments do not prevent us from having honest, thoughtful conversations about the significant barriers that make being an out actor in Hollywood an ongoing obstacle.
