Prison Break star: I'm a gay man

2013-08-22 08:24
Los Angeles - Television star Wentworth Miller announced he is gay on Wednesday in order to take a public stand against homophobia in Russia, reports Mail Online.

The Prison Break star declined an invitation to a Russian film festival after the country passed a series of anti-gay laws.

The 41-year-old Prison Break star had been asked to attend the St Petersburg International Film Festival.

"As a gay man, I must decline," he wrote in his reply, which was made public by the campaigning group GLAAD.

"I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government," Wentworth added in his letter.

"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," he said. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
