Jane Lynch Kept Gay Secret From Her Parents For A Decade



Gay Glee star Jane Lynch kept her “affair” with a college teacher a secret from her parents for a decade.

The actress realised she was gay while she was growing up in Illinois and swore to keep her sexuality to herself, but she started to loosen up at college after falling for a female lecturer.
She says, “I had a crush on a teacher… and we had a little affair.”
But Lynch felt she couldn’t tell her parents about the fling.
She adds, “I didn’t tell my parents until I was almost 32, so I went about 10/11 years not being honest with my parents and we were very distant from each other.
“I did not feel a part of the family and it really, really tore me up, so I went to see a psychologist, who said, ‘Why don’t you write them a letter, you won’t send it…’ You’re really honest and you say how you feel and it was really lovely… and I said, ‘I think I’ll send it.'”
Her folks were very accepting of the fact their daughter was gay – and Lynch feels she did the right thing in waiting to reveal the news.
She explains, “When I was 32 the situation was different with my family than when I was 18 in 1978… Nobody talked about gay people and if I were to tell my parents when I was 18 that I was gay I think I would have freaked them out, they would have been afraid for me… It was a different story in 1992.”


Elton John May be Heading To Glee

Jane Lynch – who plays cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester in the musical TV show – encouraged the ‘Tiny Dancer’ hitmaker to make an appearance in the series before finding out he had already met with the ‘Glee’ boss.

Lindsay Lohan’s Mom Fuming With Glee Again

Lindsay Lohan‘s mother Dina has taken aim at the makers of Glee for a second time after they poked fun at her in the latest episode of the hit series.

In the show, which aired on Sunday (February 6), newsreader Katie Couric informed Jane Lynch’s character Sue Sylvester she had been named one of the world’s biggest losers, along with Dina and her dog “Sparky Lohan”.
The actress’ mom was fuming at the reference and has urged Glee bosses to stop making “hurtful” references and instead produce “nice” scenes.
She tells E! News, “The show has targeted everyone from gays to lesbians, Asians, disabled and each other… several groups are going after the producers including mothers’ groups.
“It’s a shame as the dance numbers are amazing, but the writers need to be nice and more creative as opposed to being hurtful. They are sending the wrong message to the youth that are watching.
“Oh, and I must get a ‘fifth’ dog named Sparky… as far as Katie Couric is concerned, she has a short memory when the tabloids were trashing her a few years ago – and she’s a mom!”
Last year (10), Dina threatened legal action against the show’s makers after Gwyneth Paltrow’s character poked fun at her troubled daughter.

Jane Lynch To Publish a Memoir

Hyperion’s Voice imprint today announced plans to publish a new book by Golden Globe and Emmy Award–winning actress Jane Lynch, who plays one-liner powerhouse coach Sue Sylvester on the hit television musical series “Glee.” The book, a funny and inspiring memoir titled Happy Accidents, is scheduled for publication in September 2011. It will focus on Lynch’s career, from The Second City to Christopher Guest movies and Judd Apatow projects, and how getting sober and embracing her sexuality helped her find both personal and professional joy.
Jane Lynch said of the new book, “If I could go back in time and have a conversation with my 18-year-old self, the first thing I’d say is, ‘Lose the perm.’ Second, I would say, ‘Relax. Really—just relax. Don’t sweat it.’ For a long time, I was anxious and fearful that the parade would pass me by, and that someone or something outside myself had all the answers. Having finally reached a happy place—a happy accidents place—I want to share my story with others, to let them know things aren’t as bad as they fear.”

The announcement of the new book was made by Ellen Archer, President and Publisher of Hyperion. Of the deal, Archer said, “We are delighted to be publishing Jane Lynch’s memoir and showcasing her humor and honesty. We’ve all been fans of her career for many years, from ‘Best in Show’ to her red-hot star turn on ‘Glee.’”
