Wentworth Miller: A Man of Principle!

I’ve written so many blogs about Went and it never ever ceases to amaze me what a wonderful and beautiful human being he is.  I’ve also mentioned many times on a few of my blogs that I wouldn’t cross the line regarding Went’s privacy or his sexuality out of respect to him.  Today however, is the day that I’m moved to do just that, as I feel that Went has given me his consent to write openly and freely about his sexual orientation?

Went declined an invitation to attend the St Petersburg International Film Festival on principle because he feels strongly about the Russian Government’s discrimination against gay men and women and their rights, as he is in fact gay too.  This is what the contents of his letter said …

To Russia, without love [… just kidding she laughs.]

 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.

 Wentworth Miller

Now that’s a man of principle

I’m so proud of Wentworth that he has finally spoken out about himself and he has made a stand for human rights.  I feel a sense of relief for Went, and now he can live his life freely and openly.

Congratulations dear Went!

I must confess however Went, that I have told you that I love you in a fashion, but now I feel liberated too as I’m now free to declare my unconditional love for you openly.   My invitation to cook you a scrumptious meal anytime, anywhere, still stands.  [She winks.]

Way to go my dearest Went!
