While Hay went on to openly embrace his sexual orientation and form the Radical Faeries in the late 1970s, Gernreich left his fight for gay rights behind to focus on his career.

“He’s an artist who survived the Holocaust and now he’s faced with a world where ironically as a fashion designer he can’t be himself,” Urie says.

The 29-year-old Juilliard grad, who once had dreams of staying in his suburban hometown outside Dallas to teach high school drama, has basically become synonymous with his foppish character. “And here I am,” he continues, “playing two people in the fashion world, one of which has to hide the fact that he’s gay in order to succeed, the other of which is successful because he’s gay.”It may at first seem too coincidental that Urie spent several months flip-flopping between such similar roles.

Indelicato revealed how own coming-out process mirrored Justin’s.

“Mark, I remember having a really interesting conversation with your mom about that,” Rebecca Romijn said to the young actor, whose mom told him “you were going to be able to help kids doing this role.” Horta also revealed his original idea to have Betty be an FBI agent undercover at a fashion magazine.

Urie had been doing readings of ), well before he landed the prime-time role that put him on the map.

When Marans resurfaced to recruit Urie for the showcase of the play in New York City’s Studio Theatre last April, Urie says he was hardly reluctant.

In another scene he’ll switch gears, playing a surrogate big bro to Betty’s seemingly gay teenage nephew, Justin, as he copes with high school bullies.

And Urie says his art is his form of activism: “Both have given me a platform to help people see the world in a different way, and that to me is going to do a lot more than standing on a soapbox.” Yet the actor has never openly addressed his own sexual orientation, going only so far as to identify himself on his website as “a member of the LGBT community.” Discussing last June, “Playing a guy who is struggling with his career and his personal life is familiar to me, keeping your personal life to yourself but also being free and open to be yourself in the world.” At the time some said Urie was being disingenuous, that he was trying to have his cake and eat it too.

The only problem is that it's hard for a slightly less attractive woman to find her beauty surrounded by tall skinny models at a fashion magazine but Betty doesn't let this stop her or her positive attitude towards her work.

Despite being set in New York and its pilot being filmed there, the first and second seasons were filmed entirely in Los Angeles.

Ferrera said, by 2016, Betty would be returning to New York after six years in London to find that sister Hilda has had another baby and opened a salon, while Indelicato thought Justin would be finishing fashion school.

(No word on if he’s still still dating high school love Austin.) Though it was only a few years ago, the show was trailblazing in many regards—a mainstream network series with a Latino family at its core was practically unheard of, as was one with a smart, successful trans woman and a flamboyant (and happy) gay teen.

But in many ways it’s a fascinating story that paved the way.
