Most famously known for his role as Michael Schofield in the 2005 hit series ‘Prison Break’, Wentworth Miller has come out of the closet as a gay man. According to CNN Miller wrote a letter to the St. Petersburg International Film Festival declaring that he could not attend after being invited to the Russian festival. In a letter he wrote:
”As a gay man, I must decline,” Miller wrote in his letter. “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.”
Miller has also advocated his membership in The ManKind Project and the human rights campaign GLAAD who publicly supported Miller with this statement:
”Wentworth’s bold show of support sends a powerful message to LGBT Russians, who are facing extreme violence and persecution: you are not alone,” GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz said in a statement. “As people from across the globe continue to speak out against Russia’s horrific law, more celebrities and corporations should follow his courageous lead in openly condemning Russia’s anti-LGBT law.”
Take that Putin you *****. The world has been all over your ass for your anti-gay policies and now you have Michael Schofield at your doorstep. Watch your back and do your homework Putin because you just messed with a dude who has escaped maximum security prison twice (or was it 3 times?). Anyways do you know the muscle behind the operation? A guy named Lincoln Burrows ring any bells? Sorry Bro, he’s here he’s queer get used to it. And **** your ****** festival. ‘Merica!
