Wow, who would have supposed?

Wentworth Miller, the actor who played the lead feature Michael Scofield in jail Break came out as a gay man yesterday August 21 via an open note to the Saint Petersburg Film Festival, rejecting an invitation to attend a premiere there because of Russia's recently-passed anti-gay regulations.

The 41-year-old player wrote:

express gratitude you for your kind invitation. As somebody who has relished travelling to Russia in the past and can furthermore assertion a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes. However, as a gay man, I should down turn.

I am deeply troubled by the present attitude toward and remedy of gay men and women by the Russian government. The position is in no way agreeable, and I will not in good conscience take part in a celebratory occasion hosted by a homeland where persons like myself are being systematically rejected their rudimentary right to reside and love in an open way.

possibly, when and if circumstances advance, I'll be free to make a distinct alternative.
Until then. Wentworth Miller
