Glee star opens up about struggle with sexuality

Glee star, Jane Lynch, had recalled the struggle she had with her sexuality as a teenager, saying it: "felt like a disease."

During an interview with Huffpost Live recently, Jane said it took her a long time to be comfortable within her own skin: "I was in the closet for so long and it tortured me. I thought I was the only [gay] person in the world."

Jane also spoke of the impact Glee has had on the LGBT community: "I'm glad that this show and the fact that I'm out and open about it will perhaps ease the hearts and minds of some kids when it's not so easy."
