Wilson Cruz is an American actor, producer, activist, and singer.
The five-part documentary series "Visible: Out on Television" explores the role of television in LGBTQ representation and rights. Executive producers Ryan White and Wilson Cruz join "CBS This Morning Saturday" co-host Michelle Miller to share the impact of moments like Ellen DeGeneres' character coming out on her sitcom and a 1980s "60 Minutes" report about why LGBTQ people were angry with the federal government's inaction on the AIDS epidemic. Cruz, who starred in the 1994 teen drama "My So-Called Life,” shares the impact of being the first openly gay actor to play an openly gay series regular in a leading role. White, who also directs the series, explains the progress that still needs to be made regarding representation in media.
