There has been an ongoing speculation that Prison Break star Wentworth Miller is gay. He’s never publicly come out with it and simply allowed the media to speculate.
Well, not this time. He was invited to the Russian Film festival but in solidarity with the LGBT community, he issued a statement declining the invitation saying:
“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,” Miller wrote in the letter, posted on GLAAD’s website. “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,” Miller continued. “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 systemically denied their basic right to live and love openly.”
“Perhaps, when if circumstance improve, I’ll be free to make a different choice,” Miller concluded. “until then.”
Kudos Wentworth Miller!! Kudos!!
