Groff recently opened up about his sexuality during press for Spring Awakening and revealed he was ashamed of who he was for years. He told Out, “It wasn’t like I came out when I was 23 and everything was great. I came out of the closet and I was still feeling quite shameful for many years.” It wasn’t until he played a gay character in Looking that he felt like he really belonged.
