“Orphan Black” star Jordan Gavaris has come out as gay.
In an interview with Vulture, Gavaris, who plays Sarah’s gay brother Felix in the sci-fi series, explained he had never publicly come out because no one had asked.
“I guess that’s where I’m at in terms of coming out publicly: I had this position when I started on the show that it shouldn’t matter. And I believe that. I hope that one day, the world gets to a place where you don’t need to politicize your sexuality any more than someone needs to politicize their race — that we can just act and we can exist in this Zeitgeist, telling stories about one another. And that no one’s afraid, maybe, to come out,” Gavaris continued.
The 27-year-old explained he felt awkward coming out to his parents at 19 because it was a confession that he wanted to be sexual.
