‘…as A Gay Man I Must Decline’
Strong reports have surfaced about the ‘Prison Break’ actor coming out as a proud homosexual. The reports are alleging that Wentworth Miller wrote a detailed letter declining his invitation to the Russian Film Festival due to the Russian’s policies against the LGBTQ community, which he belongs to.
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
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.

If this letter proves to be written by Miller, We are with you 100 percent! Congrats for standing out and speaking up for many who may not have a voice, this ladies and gentlemen…is a GOOD THING.
