It’s true! He’s said it and everything! With his own mouth! Not only that, but he has a boyfriend! And they probably do it! Doggy style!
Now, you may have had an inkling about gay old Michael Urie’s gayness but he has never before spoken of such a thing, prefering to leave it a mystery, albeit a mystery of Scooby Doo proportions. He was concerned that he would never get work if everyone knew he was gay. He was kind of half right.
Now, he has used the august organ of The Advocate (not the first august organ he’s used, we’re sure!) to sort of come out. ‘I’ve never said I was straight,’ he says, though he did once ask us out on a date and we are male and quite obviously top. ‘And I’m not saying I’m gay now.’ Oh, here we go. ‘I never lie, and I’ve never shied away from the topic. I’ve certainly chosen through my work to do things that promote the rights of LGBTQ people. I am not a hypocrite—certainly not now.”’
He’s in a film about the Mattachine Society, a very early gay organisation (there’s that organ again – the man’s obsessed. Obsessed we say!), which is what he means about the LGBTQRSTUV people thing. And he showed the Advocate journo a picture of the man he’s been dating (‘I’m not saying I’m gay’)… but he in fact identifies as Queer.
How very 90s of him!
