Ruggiero, who is an LGBTQ+ activist, told eTalk Canada at the time: “It was interesting, I was growing up at the exact same time as my character was growing up, and he was questioning things that I was questioning, and I was just a kid. It was a little overwhelming in the sense that the things I was feeling were being broadcast to the world, and in a way kind of made me revert back almost because I didn’t know how to confront it myself. Maybe it’s life imitating art, or maybe that’s what Degrassi intended to do. I feel like I’m living proof of what the show wanted to accomplish.”
