Back in 2016, Jussie Smollett spoke openly about being gay in Hollywood, saying,

“I get tired of the idea of someone telling me what my truth is. I’ve said from beginning of my journey i do not hide who i am. I love who i love. No one is going to tell me that somehow that is going to be my disability”.

“I am told so many times that i shouldN’T walk truly in my blackness. That I should not walk truly in my sexuality, i should not walk truly in who i am. I say thanks but no thanks. I honestly think that me being myself has actually helped my career move forward. Jussie Smollett in attitude magazine.
