Thomas Dekker Comes Out as Gay, Reveals He's Married!

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Backstrom actor Thomas Dekker has 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.

“Sexuality and who you love is a deeply personal and complicated thing. For some of us, it takes time to cultivate, discover and conclude. It is not something anyone should ever be ashamed of and certainly not something anyone should be rushed into.

I agree with many who believe it is an important responsibility for LGBTQ persons with a platform to come out. It has the power to change minds, challenge beliefs and make others feel understood and supported. It can strengthen the progression of our community and help disarm those who discriminate against us. It is a brave, powerful and important thing to do but it is also a deeply personal decision. One that should only be made when you are ready.

If we are to stand strong in the gay community, our mission should be support, not exclusion; love, not shame. I choose not to look back on the past with a regretful heart but rather focus on the future with a hopeful one. A future where myself and all others can feel free to express their true selves with honor and dignity.

I embrace you, any of you, with open arms, kindness, faith and patience. For all of you who have supported me, before and now, I thank you from the bottom of my fledgling heart.
Be proud of who you are. No matter how long it takes.”

    Wait, didn’t her refer to having an ex girlfriend back in his ‘Sarah Chronicles’ days.

    Who si he again? As soon as I saw his picture I knew he was gay, no need to come out

  • greppinwolf

    And absolutely no one is surprised because everyone already knew. The real question is: Is he relevant any more at this point. Has anyone seen him in anything lately? Good thing he listened to his management :rolls eyes: with Bryan Fuller. Also, he seems to enjoy spouting neo-pretentious BS. I’m sure directors love that.
