Just weeks after President Barack Obama’s announced his support of gay marriage, another celeb is taking a brave step by declaring himself to the world.

On Wednesday, The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons quietly came out after an interview with The New York Times. In the article, Parsons said he resonated with the play The Normal Heart — citing that he, like the main character, is gay.

This has been the first time the 39-year-old actor confirmed his sexual orientation.

Although Jim did not go into greater detail about his private life, he did mention that he has been in a committed relationship for ten years.

It’s been reported that the actor had publicly thanked his longtime beau during his acceptance speech at the 2010 Emmy Awards.
