LOS ANGELES - Jim Parsons has skipped the "I'M GAY!" magazine cover approach to coming out: Far down in a New York Times profile Wednesday was the subtle mention that the two-time Emmy winner has been in a same-sex relationship for a decade.
Discussing Parsons' small role in the play "The Normal Heart" - about gay men dying of AIDS - the story noted: "'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." Parsons played young gay activist Tommy Boatwright in the play.
While this may be the first official confirmation of Parsons' sexuality, the National Enquirer attempted to "out" the actor in 2010 by writing that he was engaged to his boyfriend, Todd Spiewak.
No wonder, he was never good with the girls in the Big Bang Theory show!
It is very encouraging of Sheldon (Jim) to come out in the open with his sexuality, goes without saying, it will help bring homosexuality in equal rights in the (American) Society just as once there had been the to bring women & African-Americans in the mainstream society.
