Miller, 41, was invited to appear at the St. Petersburg international Film Festival, but declined due to Russia’s recent anti-LGBT legislation.

Below is the letter he sent, posted on GLAAD’s website.

 

“As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes. However, as a gay man, I must decline.”

“I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government. The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systemically denied their basic right to live and love openly.”

“Perhaps, when if circumstance improve, I’ll be free to make a different choice, until then.”

Miller was rumored to be gay while he was doing Prison Break but denied it then.
