“Prison Break” star Wentworth Miller has come out as gay. He went public with his sexuality after being invited to a film festival in Russia.
The 41-year-old actor wrote,
“Thank you for your kind invitation. 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.”
Russia’s new anti-LGBT law bans “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations around minors,” including the public discussion of gay rights and relationships anywhere children might hear it.
Good for Wentworth! I know I’m late to the party, but I just started watching ‘Prison Break’ on Netflix and LOVE IT!
