Does that mean it was a secret? Really? We figured it was so obvious even in his macho days on Prison Break that it didn’t need to be mentioned. Anywaaay, seems he was invited recently to attend the St. Petersburg International Film Festival in Russia, and in a letter to the director of the festival declining the invite, he wrote that he was gay. “Thank you for your kind invitation,” he said in the letter. “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.” So bless him for taking a stand against bigotry, ignorance, cruelty, and injustice, even if it meant stating the obvious.
