Butler is openly gay. He came out to his family when he was in his early 20s. He wrote a one-man show, The Only Thing Worse You Could Have Told Me, which played in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and off-Broadway in New York and was Butler's public coming out. The play had ten characters "just processing what gay means". Butler performed the show at the same time as he played the macho, chauvinist, woman chasing "Bulldog Briscoe" on Frasier in 1994. The performance was nominated for the 1995 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding One-Person Show.
