'Prison Break' star Wentworth Miller reveals that he's gay!


Why do some good looking guys are gay?

Wentworth Miller received an invitation to attend the St. Petersburg International Film Festival, citing Russia's anti-LGBT laws. In a letter Miller sent to the St. Petersburg International Film Festival he rejected the invitation because he was gay.

Re: St. Petersburg International Film Festival / "Guest of Honor" Invitation 
Dear Ms. Averbakh: 
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. 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. 
Perhaps, when and if circumstances improve, I'll be free to make a different choice. 
Until then.

Miller boldly shows support message for the LGBT Russians who are currently facing extreme persecution and violence.
