Actor Charlie Carver, of Desperate Housewives and now Teen Wolf has come out as gay …
“So now, let the record show this- I self-identify as gay. And does that really matter anymore? As a young man, I needed a young man in Hollywood to say that- and without being a dick about it, I owe it to myself, more than anything, to be who I needed when I was younger.”
Charlie had planned on coming out earlier but wasn’t sure just how to do it …
“There were so many drafts and plans, none of them ever getting off the ground. So I bided my time, justifying the silence with the fact that I hadn’t really ever been “in”. I tried to live as authentically as I’ve known how to, as a gay guy, since that concept became available to me, only once or twice intentionally dodging the ever ill-timed question with the subtext that might have as well read “ARE YOU GAY???” I’ve lived “out,” not feeling the need to announce so. I was comfortably out in my private life. And for a time, that was enough.”
And, as a twin, Charlie also answered that other question …
“And let the record show my twin brother is just as cool for being straight.”
Well then we have a Carver for both teams, don’t we?
Welcome out, Charlie, and, naturally, as a young gay man, you might be in need of the Obligatory Coming Out Toaster Oven and your very own copy of The Gay Agenda.
It’s perfect reading when you’re warming up that Hot Pocket — and that isn’t some sort of sexual innuendo … I think — for your someone special.
