Did Not Come Out Until 60 Years Of Age, Was Scared Of Prosecution
In 2010, on the back of his success with TMZ, Harvey came out as gay. Hiding his sexuality till the age of 60 could not have been easy. But the situations were so dire at that time he couldn’t come out.
And I believe, at the time, there was good cause for thinking I’d get fired. It got to a point where I was agoraphobic. My biggest joy was just never having to leave my house.
The gay people were often times the recipient of the stick just for their biological wiring; they were shamed, discriminated, often times fired from the jobs without any reasons, and even physically assaulted.
