    Wentworth Miller refused an invitation to a film festival in Russia because of the country’s new laws banning homosexual “propaganda,” and then outed himself. The 41-year-old star sent a letter to the organizers of the festival stating ”as a gay man, I must decline.” Miller said that he is troubled by the current attitude, and went on to state: “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.” Bravo.
