Actor Jim Parsons has described his
casual coming out gay as “progress.”
In speaking to gay glossy Out
for its upcoming Out100 double issue, Parsons discussed reaction to
The New York Times profile that casually dropped “Mr.
Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship” without the need for
an elaborate quote from its subject.
“I didn't think it was still that
much hoopla, and that was really kind of rewarding. That's progress
– progress I'm really happy to be a part of, making what was
extraordinary ordinary without being boring, for God's sake,”
Parsons, who is best know for playing
science geek Sheldon Cooper on CBS' The Big Bang Theory, can
next be seen reprising his Broadway role of AIDS activist Tommy
Boatwright in the Ryan Murphy-directed version of the The Normal
Heart for HBO.
