Personal life[edit]

Ross is an "out" gay man.[2] He explains, "As for being 'out,' I think that's all a part of being comfortable with who you are and that ultimately helps you in all aspects of life. It's not always easy to get to that point though, which is why a supportive community always helps as well as knowing that others have taken that path (with success) before you."[2]
