  “I’m in Boston and it was a benefit for the Cam Neely Foundation, and my friend Denis Leary asked me to do it … but this was right after the election. So Denis goes up and he does some Trump jokes and people laugh. And then another comic goes up and he does a couple jokes, whatever, some Trump stuff, and people laugh — another white guy. And so then I go up, and the first joke I get some...

Yeah, I think she had to review every single penis before putting it on the show. For me, it was interesting because that scene was actually very real, and the look on my face and the way that I was feeling was very real. The energy in the room of that many big men jumping and yelling and slapping you — nudity aside — I’m nothing like Nate, and it was so intense. I didn’t realize locker rooms could...

“It’s hard not to feel like something in my personal life is not being scandalized because that’s kind of the way it feels when you read headlines about yourself, especially when you read headlines that have this big bang to them, and then you read the article and you’re like, ‘Why did you write that article? There is actually nothing there.’ It’s all just something to egg on some sort of rumor cycle that will just keep going around until...

“It’s gotten better but I can’t make a blanket statement that doesn’t happen anymore. There are always going to be shades of homophobia–sometimes internalized homophobia that I’ve encountered from other gay people in the industry. They might feel that ‘too gay.’ When I first came on the scene almost everybody that I encountered in the music business was very supportive of me personally, but they were all a bit nervous about how it could work publicly. Now it’s...

“I was the starting-out artist begging for help and I would go to people who ran labels or influential DJs saying: ‘Can you help me out? Can you listen to this song? Can you hook me up?’ Can you sign me to your record label?’ and a lot of people said: ‘Yeah, if you’ll do this,’ and usually it was a sexual favor. I couldn’t bring myself to do it because I knew I couldn’t look myself in the mirror...

“I’m beyond embarrassed. I think that when it happened, I had a flash of me running from bullies. I had a flash of my whole life, of my childhood, my youth, getting beaten. Of course, there’s some doubt. I’m telling you that because I love him so much. That’s the torture that I’m in right now, because it’s literally if it were to happen to your son and your child, how would you feel? You would feel, Please, God, please...

“I’m proud Rocketman is the first major studio film with a gay love sex scene in it. If I’d left it out, I’d have felt I was cheating people. I’m so glad it’s in there because I am a gay man and I didn’t want to airbrush it under the carpet. If they don’t like it, I understand, but it’s part of who I am. That night was a very, very important part. When I grew up, my father told me if I...

“I’m really proud of that episode. And I will defend it to anybody who wants to talk about it. Why shouldn’t their teacher marry another man? We all know people who are gay, who are trans, and it’s something that is socially acceptable. Why is there this discomfort that it takes a leap into our national media? I don’t want children or people who are different to feel excluded. That’s not the kind of world we want to live in. And...

The morning we were ready to come back for the second season, I pick up my phone, and it’s blowing up. I’m like, “What is this?” I looked at the Valerie Jarrett tweet, and I was like, “Aw, jeez, I can’t condone this.” I emailed Bruce and Tom Werner and I was like, “Guys, I can’t be a part of this.” I didn’t hear anything right away. They were probably busy trying to figure out what they were going to...
