I thought he was already out...but I guess not.
Emmy-winning Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons is soon to star on stage in a revival of Harvey, and is the focus of a profile today in the New York Times. Well, we've mentioned this upcoming project before, so why bring it up now? Because buried deep in the profile is this statement:
Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship.
Jim's sexuality has been a source of discussion for quite a while (the comment in the article doesn't actually quote him), but this may be the first time such an enormous mainstream outlet has announced it, and the fact that it was done so matter-of-factly is heartening.
