And gives Russia the finger.
It’s official: Wentworth Miller is G.A.Y.! Bring out the confetti!
What some of us already knew, hot pants Wentworth confirmed yesterday in a letter to Russia. Why Russia of all places you wonder? Well, sistah was invited to attend the St. Petersburg International Film Festival as a “Guest of Honor”. Is that even legal in Russia, making a queen the guest of honor? The event organizer is probably shitting his panties right now.
Anyway, like a true diva Wentworth wrote the festival a nice letter with a big NO-NO.

Re: St. Petersburg International Film Festival / “Guest of Honor” Invitation
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.
