The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers came out last year, but it was just recently that a viral-ish tweet brought part of the book to the attention of many. According to the biography, Mr. Rogers told his openly gay friend that if sexuality was a spectrum, "Well, you know, I must be right smack in the middle. Because I have found women attractive, and I have found men attractive."

After she watched the new documentary, she read the Mr. Roger’s biography. Apparently he never used the word, but in an interview where he was asked if he was gay he said something like “I’m not gay, but I suppose if you look at attraction as a kind of line...— ProblemsofaBookNerd (@CeceEwing_) March 3, 2019
