Wenworth Miller, prison break star, just broke millions of hearts today to come out as being gay. He made this publich to stand against recent russian anti-gay laws. He was responding to an invitation to the St. Petersburg International Film Festival and siezed the opportunity to come out of the closet and also decline the invitation whilst sending a message to the russian
government follwowing the recent anti-gay laws.
In his reply he wrote: “Thank you for your kind invitation. As someone who has enjoyed visi
ting 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.
