Watch as Chad Allen, the out actor best known for his roles on 'Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman' and 'Our House' announced on YouTube that he is quitting acting to continue his career as a therapist and counselor for LGBT youth.
I have participated in AIDS Lifecyle and watch as Chad raised thousands of dollars and brought celebrity enthusiasm and awareness of the event over the years. For some reason, I think we will see him on the ride again.
In the 1990s, Chad was outed by tabloid “The Globe” as he kissed another man in a hot tub. He really was a trailblazer for celebrities coming out and making the best of it.
Good luck, Chad. Watch his heartfelt sentiments below.
