Rumoured Boyfriend Wentworth Miller Comes Out As Gay In 2013
Thomas initially feared that coming out could affect his career. After hiding who he was for all his life, he confessed hoping to be authentic. The 38-year-old came out as gay on 15th April 2008.
His rumored boyfriend, on the other hand, came out in 2013, penning a letter rejecting an invitation to attend the St. Petersburg International Film Festival because of Russia’s anti-LGBT laws. The message was a bold stance in support of the LGBT Russians, who he thought were facing extreme violence and persecution.
Miller, the member of The ManKind Project, wrote,
“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.”
When Miller announced that he was gay, the world wasn’t surprised much by the news, as many people already had read the 2007's reports stating his relationship with Macfarlane.
