Prison Break Hunk Wentworth Miller (finally) comes out as gay

Wentworth Miller comes out as gay
by Rickey August 21, 2013 at 7:24 pm TOP STORY · TV · Gay · Wentworth Miller

Wentworth Miller has come out as gay in a letter to the St. Petersburg International Film Festival.

I am so happy right now.



Wentworth Miller Letter to St. Petersburg International Film Festival
Wentworth Miller comes out as gay

August 21, 2013

Re: St. Petersburg International Film Festival / “Guest of Honor” Invitation

Dear Ms. Averbakh:

Thank you for your kind invitation. As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes.

However, as a gay man, I must decline.

I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government. The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.

Perhaps, when and if circumstances improve, I’ll be free to make a different choice.

Until then.

I said "finally" because Wentworth has been seen dating Luke MacFarlane (who plays Scotty Wandell at Brothers and Sisters) a few years ago

Re: Prison Break Hunk Wentworth Miller (finally) comes out as gay

Kind of suspected it (not from that photo - I still believed him and that dude were friends ), but when I read this interview of his where he was recalling a date he had when he was younger taking a girl to an ice skating rink and he used the word "schlepping", a word, being a non-American, I had only ever heard used on The Nanny.

On a serious note...

It's so sad that any prolific male celebrity who is long-term "single", especially one as handsome as him (and thus more scrutinized), will always have the "Is he gay?" thing thrust on them.

I'm glad he used it to empower a message and didn't just do it. I don't think it was ever his intention to come out, he has always been very private but in doing so now to propel this message is very brave.

I remember reading an interview where he denied and I thought it was sad, not what he did, but the fact people felt the need to ask him in the first place and him having to "lie" about it, because he was not ready at the time, looking in hindsight what we know now and what he internally knew himself.

Even in that interview referenced, the reporter asks him if he has any celebrity crushes and to pretty much evade people perpetuating those rumours, he has to outright answer the question.

But I'm glad that is now behind him.

He's 41?! Wow, good for him. And very happy that he's giving Russia the finger.

Re: Prison Break Hunk Wentworth Miller (finally) comes out as gay

Wentworth . TBH I had no idea. I never watched Prison Break or bought into the hype surrounding his physical appearance so never heard of any rumours or anything..

He did the right thing, and every self-respecting gay man would do the same thing .
