In 1985, aged 22, he came out as gay to his family and friends. In an interview with The Daily Beast, he talked about how he struggled as a child.

“Ceann is me if I never left that small town,” said Mitchell about a character in Anthem: Homunculus, a six-hour, 10-episode epic about a man and his teratoma.

“My dad was in the army (he was a major general). We moved to 15 or so places. But Junction City was interesting because it was more diverse, it had a high crime rate because of the servicemen. I pubesced at its Catholic school. And it’s where my brother Samuel died, and I discovered I was gay. I keep coming back to it.”
