Homowood has stepped forward with open arms to welcome Wentworth Miller into the elite rainbow family.

Gay actor Matt Bomer led the applause, telling E! News “Wow, I think its really bold and incredibly classy how he came out and did it”.

In a letter made public by The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), Wentworth turned down an invitation to an International Film Festival in Russia stating that “as a gay man” he could not “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”.

Miller has lead a very private life when it comes to his sexuality, up until this announcement.

Other out stars tweeted their support for Miller:

Ellen DeGeneres: “I’m proud of Wentworth Miller for speaking out in support of equality. Russia doesn’t know what they’re missing.”

Jesse Tyler Ferguson from Modern Family Tweeted: “Coming out can be scary but coming out to send a message of tolerance is heroic.”

Neil Patrick Harris: “Well done, Wentworth Miller. Bravo.”

Let’s hope these two become GBFFs!
