Actor Ezra Miller, the star of last year's The Perks of Being a Wallflower, details why he came out “queer,” not gay, last year.

Miller, 20, portrays a closeted gay young man in the film. Before Perks premiered, Miller opened up about his sexuality in an interview with gay glossy Out.

“I'm queer. I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular. I've been trying to figure out relationships, you know? I don't know if it's responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don't think we're ready for them. The romanticism within our culture dictates that that's what you're supposed to be looking for. Then [when] we find what we think is love – even if it is love – we do not yet have the tools. I do feel that it's possible to be at this age unintentionally hurtful, just by being irresponsible – which is fine. I'm super down with being irresponsible. I'm just trying to make sure my lack of responsibility no longer hurts people. That's where I'm at in the boyfriend/girlfriend/zefriend type of question,” he told the magazine.

Miller recently expanded in an interview with The Advocate.

“I think [queer] feels the most open and inclusive and that's what makes it apply for me, personally,” he said.

“I think there are a lot of people who fall on this open spectrum of sexuality,” Miller added. “My friends and I use that word as an all-encompassing banner and for every human being. There should be an ongoing question and investigation of who you love and everything that's involved with that very tricky and beautiful thing.”
