New York Times Outs Jim Parsons – He Does Not Comment.
How to come out and not own it? Get the New York Times to state the fact. He needs to now start talking openly and proudly about his life and answer questions in press and media interviews. Otherwise, this is just some weak assed Matt Bomer coming out. And worth little. Still, a small step for Parsons, so, nice to see him having growth on the ‘closet’ issue.
New York Times’ Patrick Healy recently spoke to Parsons about how he’s re-envisioning the role for a contemporary audience. But probably the biggest revelation for many is that Parsons is acknowledged as openly gay in the piece.
As Healy writes: “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.”
