“I want the world to see that gay is not what they think it is. We are not all like Queer as Folk or Will and Grace characters. We are as diverse in our community as straights are diverse in theirs. Our goal with OutoftheCloset.tv is to educate all people on diverse topics using gay people as our stars,” states owner Ted Trent. “With gay marriage the main topic in most conversations these days, it’s important people learn who they are supporting or opposing. It is not fair that we are portrayed as satanic worshippers that the religious right portray us as being. We are school teachers, authors, lawyers, comedians, auto mechanics, farmers, politicians, preachers, senators, just to name a few.”
