Kristian Nairn Comes Out

Kristian Nairn, an actor from Game of Thrones, has come out as a gay man, though he says he's always been out, but no one has ever asked him about it:
"Well, in all honesty, when you talk about “the gay community,” you are talking about MY community, haha. I AM aware of it yeah, and I think it’s really lovely. There’s not a day that I don’t get a few messages, but 99% or more are super sweet and nothing smutty at all! Again, it’s a privilege, and I really mean that. I’ve never hidden my sexuality from anyone, my whole life in fact, and I’ve been waiting for someone to ask about it in an interview, cos it’s not something you just blurt out. I’ve tried to lead the questions a few times, to no avail!"
Welcome Out, Kristian, and let's be clear: we don't have to be asked about being gay. We just need to be open about it, and not hide behind vague gender pronouns.

Welcome out, and please accept as our gift to you the Obligatory Coming Out Toaster Oven and your own copy of the Gay Agenda.

Welcome Out!
