EJ Johnson chimes in, too.

Jane Lynch was invited on the most recent episode of Chelsea, Chelsea Handler's new Netflix talk show series. During the show, Lynch opened up about being proudly single, and shared her coming out story.

In a clip from the show (watch it below), Handler praised Jane Lynch for using her platform to support the LGBT community. "It's a way of being. It's just who you love, really," Lynch said.

However, when it comes to her own love life, the actress, singer, and game show host said she's "closed for business."

She continues: "I love being alone, and I think that's how I always should have been. Alone and unattached."

Later on, Lynch was joined by EJ Johnson of #RichKids of Beverly Hills, and the guests addressed their common decision to be open about their sexuality:

"I just think it's all about timing," Johnson said, "I don't really think that I was lying, and I hope no one feels like I lied to them. Everyone needs their time, and when you're ready, you're ready, but you can't rush it."

"I just want to get to the place where everyone is just coming onto a red carpet with a man one day, a woman the next, and it's not a problem," Johnson said.

Lynch agreed, bringing up that outing other people can be very harmful to those who are not ready. "This whole outing of people...I think it can be kind of brutal," she said.

When Handler then asked if it's a celebrity's responsibility to come out, Lynch replied with a firm "No." She added "I don't think it's anybody's call," as the audience cheered.
