Foa appeared in episode 10, season 12 of Will and Grace, titled “The Pursuit of Happiness.” He was excited about the same-sex onscreen kiss he shared with his co-star. Foa, who is gay in real life, told his Instagram fans he was proud to be an out, gay man. Here’s what he had to say in his post:

Tonight I will guest star on one of my favorite shows of all time. Tonight I will kiss a man on national broadcast television and not be embarrassed or scared or ashamed in a way that my younger, dumber, more inner-homophobic self would have been.

Tonight I am an out, proud gay man playing an out, proud gay man. Tonight I get to be a part of something big and hilarious and significant and influential and groundbreaking and ridiculous and fantastic and silly and important. Tonight I am one step closer to myself. Thank you to Max Mutchnick, Sean Hayes, Scotty Icenogle, Eric McCormack and Laura Bell Bundy for helping this moment come into existence. @laurabellbundy @scotticenogle #gay #instagay #out #pride #gaypride #willandgrace
