Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chroniclesand Backstrom actor Thomas Dekkerhas come out as gay and he also revealed that he is married!
The 29-year-old actor and musician decided to be open about his sexuality after someone else tried to out him last week.
“My sexual orientation once again came into question this week when a prominent gay man used an awards acceptance speech to ‘out’ me. While he did not mention me by name, the explicit details of his reference made it easy for the public and media to connect the dots,” Thomas wrote in a letter to fans on Twitter. “While it is an odd situation, I thank him because it presents a prime opportunity for me to publicly say that I am indeed a man who proudly loves other men. In fact, this April, I married my husband and I could not be happier.”
The person that Thomas is referring to is Heroes writer Bryan Fuller, who went on to create Pushing Daisies and American Gods. During an acceptance speech at the Outfest event last week, he made a comment about a gay actor on Heroes whose management allegedly did not want him to play gay on the show. It’s no secret that he was referring to Thomas.
“I have never lied to the press about the fluidity of my sexuality but this man claiming that I came out is not true. Because I have not ‘officially’ until this moment. I simply refuse to be robbed of the glorious by that belongs to me. To say the words myself. ‘I’m gay’. Those words are a badge of honor that no one can steal,” Thomas added.
