Wentworth Miller of Prison Break fame came out as a gay man on Wednesday when he put his thoughts on paper and shipped it out to Russia. Excuse me?

That’s right! Wednesday, Miller wrote a letter to St. Petersburg International Film Festival, declining an invitation as a “guest of honour” because of his sexuality. The letter explained:

…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.

What a way to open that closet door! Indeed a bold and ballsy move for Wentworth, and I can’t think of a better way to come out than standing your ground on your ideals and morals in the face of such fascism.

Sorry though Mariah, looks like you DIDN’T belong together!
