EXCLUSIVE: Grey's Anatomy star T.R. Knight Confirms He's Gay | T.R. Knight : People.com If this is a re-post...I'm sorry! I don't know how many of you are fans of "Grey's Anatomy" or have heard about the dustup last week between Patrick Dempsey and Isiah Washington. If the rumors about the dustup are true - that it pressured him to come out, then I think it's sad. I don't think anyone should have to feel pressured to come out of the closet if they aren't ready.
