Watch: Katie Couric Interview Out And Proud Lesbian Jane Lynch (Sue Motherf**cking Sylvester on "GLEE") – (Video)

Lynch talks about Madonna’s reaction and praise for her and Chris Colfer in the Madonna episode: “Chris and I held each other tenderly, we were so touched by it.”

There’s also a short clip from the interview in which Couric asks Lynch about Ramin Setoodeh’s Newsweek interview. Says Lynch: “I play straight people all the time and nobody’s upset about it.”

Do you worry at all about the impact of being so open about your sexuality?

I have Ellen DeGeneres, and Melissa Etheridge, and, uh, all of them to thank for kind of paving the way. Rosie O’Donnell. So, it’s not such a big deal anymore. You know what, I really don’t think about it. It’s not like I have a strategy of how I’m going to deal with my orientation. I’m kind of just very open about who I am and I’m more than just that…it is just one aspect of who I am and I would like it to be viewed that way for everybody.”

Jane Lynch is classy, genuine woman who I am happy to say is on our side of the fence!
