'Big Bang Theory' Star Jim Parsons: I'm Gay

The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons is publicly acknowledging that he’s gay and has been in a long-term relationship.

The New York Times interviewed the 39-year-old actor for his new starring role as Elwood P. Dowd in Broadway’s Harvey.

In the profile, writer Patrick Healy noted, “[His other play] The Normal Heart resonated with him on a few levels: Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship, and working with an ensemble again onstage was like nourishment, he said.”

Some say Jim never hid his sexuality and addressed his relationship whenever it came up.

But notes “for years, [Jim] has lived as a gay man in his private life, but in his professional public life he skirted the issue.”

    The question here is..Sheldon Cooper is gay too?
    The show describes Cooper as not caring about sex. I thought it came from him growing up in a very religious home and having gay feelings. So he suppresses those feelings.
