Luke MacFarlane: I'm Gay

Luke MacFarlane: I'm Gay

Canadian actor Luke MacFarlane reveals that he is gay in an exclusive interview with Canadian paper Globe and Mail.

“I don’t know what will happen professionally,” MacFarlane said. “That is the fear, but I guess I can’t really be concerned about what will happen, because it’s my truth. … There is this desire in L.A. to wonder who you are and what’s been blaring for me for the last three years is how can I be most authentic to myself – so this is the first time I am speaking about it in this way.”

In next month’s season finale of Brothers & Sisters, Luke, 28, will suit up and say his vows as his character, Scotty Wandell, marries his partner, Kevin Walker.

“From a standing outside perspective, and also as someone who is gay, I think that it’s a very exciting time,” MacFarlane said. “How exciting that we’re saying, ‘This can be part of the cultural fabric, now,’ because it is two series regulars, two people that you invite into your home and you see every week. It’s telling of the beginning of more waves and I’m very proud of that.”

When asked whether or not he was currently dating anyone, Luke declined to comment. And although Luke is not a paparazzi favorite, photogs did catch him hanging out with Prison Break hottie Wentworth Miller last summer.

I don’t know who he is…

So all you doubters said him and Wentworth were just friends? Sometimes when people post you should assume that there IS some truth to what we say!

Wentworth IS gay people, wake up!

# 6

so what
its really not a big deal

Good for him. I don’t think he was really ‘in’ the closet in the way that some others are, so I guess this is him making it official for whatever reason.

It’s good to see a cute gay guy, with actual sex symbol potential, come out, as I think the pressure on these actors to stay closeted is particularly strong. It will be interesting to see how his career fares now, and if he still gets offered straight roles after being both out and playing a gay character on TV for a number of years. I hope he does – it wouldn’t bother me one bit to see him playing a straight character in a romantic role.

Whatever, all due respect to him for this choice and for being so eloquent about the issue. He seems like a really intelligent guy and a great catch for whomever he chooses to spend his time with.

kevin should dump scotty for the other guy, kitty’s brother-in law

I honestly don’t understand why it’s such a big deal when people come out. My input is always if that’s who you are fine, okay good. Gay people shouldn’t have the fear of coming out. It’s who you are, let it shine!

But why do you have to “come out” ?
Do you see Meryl Streep going to a show and then saying “Oh by the way, just to let you know, I’m straight.”
You can say that you’ve got a boyfriend or a partner, or whatever you like.
Gee, coming out is the new celebrity stunt for the D-List.

I thought he was already “out”. Wasn’t he dating TR Knight?

Because, Esther, straight people aren’t afraid to live their lives openly and don’t have to fear discrimination for simply being who they are. And because of rampant heterosexism that presumes everyone is straight when not everyone is. I had a professor in University and a student asked (the prof was gay) why they have gay pride parades but there are no straight pride parades. My professor’s reply? “Every day is a straight pride parade.”

this is why people come out @ 04/15/2008 at 5:52 pm

Straight people don’t have to come out. Being straight is always IN… It is the perceived norm. Therefore, until you come out or state that you are gay;people assume that you are straight. This is why people come out.

He’s gorgeous, and good for him but I thought he was out long ago.

Actually, being straight is out nowadays. Everyone who’s anyone is bisexual. haha

Nicely said wentworthfan!

Additionally, I don’t think he “came out” per-say. He just said he was gay in an article. We should be able to say that we are gay and people not be confused as to why we want to mention it in a conversation.

Ester, the issue of “Coming Out” is only present when there are questions surrounding his statement of being gay. Why did they even ask a follow up question? There will be no need to “Come Out” the day that someone doesn’t ask a follow up question to me saying that I have a boyfriend.

How did this turn into a Wentworth Miller issue. Went is not gay.

It’s Wentworth Miller’s boyfriend!!!!! I think this means that Went will come out soon too! Be proud of who you are Wenty!! :)

DUH ?!!! we do know that he’s gay and that for a long long time, he went out wit TR Knight

#18, Wentworth Miller has been rumored to be gay since he first came on the scene in Hollywood. I’m not saying he is or he isn’t but the fact that he was hanging out with Luke is suggestive that those rumors might be true. I wonder if Ted C. knows? Is he toothy tile?

MLW, Wentworth IS gay! He’s still in the closet though.

Alison, I know that Went is rumoured to be gay, but frankly I don’t believe those rumours. Maybe that’s wishful thinking on my part..;-)

he’s so cutee. idk him though.
good for him.<3
