Justin came out on Ugly Betty last night, and this is one of the sweetest, most subtle handlings I've seen on TV. If you want to catch up on the story line, check the four previous videos documenting the lead up to last night's episode by clicking this video and seeing the previous videos uploaded by this same user.
The writers, producers, ABC, and of course, Mark Indelicato all deserve a lot of credit for something so beautiful:

This past Saturday, Gavin Creel was in New York City, talking to me on the phone.
18 hours after this interview, a car picked him up early in the morning, and took him to the airport, where he boarded a jet to London. In a few weeks, he and the rest of the Broadway tribe of Hair will open the show in the West End. Creel was Tony nominated for his turn as Claude, the conflicted hippie who has to decide what's important for him as the summer of love overlaps with the Vietnam War.
I reviewed the show back in January, but didn't realize at the time that Creel was openly gay. Having figured that out at some later point, we had a few interview attempts, but our schedules weren't lining up.
With the clock ticking on how long Creel would be on American soil, before bringing his magical show of peace and love to London, we finally made it happen. Here's what we said:

I was surprised to find out that, despite watching the show for many years, I've never interviewed a Project Runway contestant for Oasis before. This year, I was interested to talk with Jay Nicholas Sario, who lives in San Francisco, works for The Gap, and as of this writing, is still going strong on the show. We set up the interview recently through the show's publicist, only to discover that we work within a block of one another. Jay jumped on the phone call just as my automated corporate teleconference voice announced that the call was being recorded. He immediately jumped in.
Oh no... I'm nervous!
But there's no video?! They video'd you on Project Runway. This is just audio and it's not even going to be broadcast.
Since yesterday I have:
Been splattered with scolding tomato juice,
Chased monsters with a rolling pin,
Turned up to a convent in a black denim mini and a pair of purple fishnets (this was not my fault no one said it would be a convent),
Humiliated myself in front of my entire peer group (this seems to be a daily occurrence now so I wouldn
AARGH! Ok, this has nothing to do with being a queer youth, but I HATE GROUP PROJECTS!!!
Sometimes you really piss me off.
Hey! I'm Ashley and I have dredlocks. I don't know what else to say. I live in "Brew City", WI. ( milwaukee, for those who don't know, now you know!) I'm nice and single and don't know where to look for other "family" members. I'm still in the closet but have the door half way open.
Hey!! Knew to this stuff but I am gay and would like to find some friends to chat with or whatever, I am cute with a great personality so drop me a line @ DeryckConrad@yahoo.com
I came out to my cat this morning before I left for work.
I highly suspect he was on to me for sometime now. The gay porn on my computer could have been a giveaway. Or it could have been that time he caught me making out with a cute boy on the couch... I told him I was confused. HE seemed to accept it at the time.
I hope my coming out to him will not change our relationship for the worse.. I do care for him so... I hope he acceps me for who I am...
