GAY TIMES DECEMBER 2018 • JAKE BORELLI
Grey’s Anatomy is one of the most successful TV shows in history. Creator Shonda Rhymes has ensured that the show has been at the forefront of diverse representation in various ways over the course of its 15 season strong history. With a gay male love story finally forming part of the main plot, we met Jake Borelli, one half of TV’s cutest new budding romance. The actor chose to come out himself following the episode when his character kissed another man for the first time, and has been welcomed into the community with open arms. We spoke on the power of TV, representation, and his own coming out journey.
“I admire people who run with the inner story of running authenticity and honesty, and I knew that at the beginning of my career, that I wanted to be one of those people. Now that I have this new platform, I was basically like, ‘You know what Jake? You have to be honest, you have to be authentic, you have to spread that.’”
