Heroes Actor Thomas Dekker Comes Out

Thomas Dekker

You may remember that Dekker’s Heroes character was slated to be gay on the show, but Dekker’s agents at the time objected.


Thomas Dekker, who played Zach on the TV series Heroes, has come out as gay after he said he was outed by “a prominent gay man” in an awards acceptance speech.

Wrote Dekker on Instagram:

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.

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.

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 joy that belongs to me. To say the words myself. “I’m gay”. Those words are a badge of honor that no one can steal.
