Television star Wentworth Miller announced he was gay on Wednesday in order to take a public stand against homophobia in Russia. The Prison Break star declined an invitation to a Russian film festival after the country passed a series of anti-gay laws.

The 41-year-old Prison Break star had been asked to attend the St. Petersburg International Film Festival. 'As a gay man, I must decline,' he wrote in his reply, which was made public by the campaigning group GLAAD.

Russian President Vladimir Putin in July signed a law banning the adoption of Russian-born children by gay couples.

Putin in June signed another bill that classified 'homosexual propaganda' as pornography and provides for fines and arrest for those making it accessible to minors. A law passed in 2012 also banned public gay pride events in Moscow for the next 100 years.
