While it was not easy for Chyler to come to grips with her sexuality and to open up to her husband about that, the former Grey’s Anatomy star feels it has only made their bond stronger.
“It’s been a long and lonely road for both my husband and myself but I can whole-heartedly say that after all these years, he and I are still discovering the depths of ourselves and each other,” she writes, “but throughout our journey we’ve learned to be proud of who we are, no matter the cost.”
Unfortunately, it did cost her the support of some loved ones who were not accepting of her truth. “I was told from dear friends (and even avid watchers of Supergirl) that they would no longer watch the show because of the fact that Alex’s journey took a turn from their less than acceptable beliefs,” she wrote. And they soon began to also distance themselves from Chyler herself.
Though she was hurt to be “outcast” from people she loved and cared for, Chyler says, “I don’t hold a grudge towards the negative response, because as I said, we all have had a hard time in one way or another with acceptance (whatever the subject may be) whether towards ourselves or others.”
