Wentworth Miller Was Ready To Die Because He Was Gay

wentworth_miller_01wentworth miller was fighting those demons.
as you know,
he recently just ( x came out the closet ).
he was suicidal while being in the closet.
he spoke at a human rights campaign dinner about his testimony…

“The first time I tried to kill myself I was 15. I waited until my family went away for the family and I was alone in the house and I swallowed a bottle of pills,” he revealed to a large audience. “I don’t remember what happened over the next couple of days but I’m pretty sure come Monday morning I was on the bus back to school pretending everything was fine.”

“Growing up I was a target. Speaking the right way, standing the right way, holding your wrist the right way. Every day was a test and there was a thousand ways to fail,” he said. “A thousand ways to portray yourself to not live up to someone else’s standards of what was accepted.”

The former Prison Break star also admitted that it made him nervous to come out early in his career. “I had multiple opportunities to speak my truth, which is that I was gay, but I chose not to. I was out privately to family and friends — publicly, I was not.” He continued: “I chose to lie — when I thought about the possibility of coming out, how that might impact me and the career I worked so hard for, I was filled with fear.”

wow.
well i’m glad he was able to find his truth.
i hope he finally found peace!
is there anyone out there who wasn’t suicidal because they liked men?
was anyone just content and doing them while being discreet?
anyone?

  1. I’ve never wanted to kill myself for liking men. No one’s ever gotten to me that bad. My suicide attempts were for other reasons.

  2. I wasn’t suicidal but I was very secretive. I just didn’t want to be disowned from my family. S/N thumbs up to “people cry fro help when there’s help to cry for” comment

  3. I’m glad he didn’t go through with it. As I said before, people between a certain age group consider or commit suicide because they are gay. It usually is between 13 and 21. When a person realizes they are gay, it has to grow on them, and they have to get used to it. I know it’s some people in here who struggled, but once you started having sex and enjoying all the perks that come with being gay, you soon got comfortable lol. You forgot all about your parents accepting you, and losing your friends and all of that stuff.

    I never wanted to kill myself, I accepted it right away. Actually, I have always liked being attracted to men, I think it’s hot, and it’s even hotter that I want to be with other masc men. However, I wish I was attracted to women as much as I am men to even shit out lol.

    1. As someone else who is also bisexual I would say I am about 60/40… (men/women) but it switches depending on my mood. Some days I don’t even look at men and are all about females then other days I’m like where’s the meat… lol!

    1. Told y’all lol. This is a prime example. The Foxes were the same too. As soon as they got some dick and started hooking up with niggas it all went away lol. I think it’s like that for most. Finding a friend who also is into men helps too, you won’t be alone that way..

  4. I knew I liked guys since age 3. I never thought it was bad or different, until others told me it was (or that they thought it was). That led to years of secrecy, and denial. I did contemplate suicide at one point because I felt hopeless. The whole liking guys thing wasn’t going anywhere, so I decided I would (as in away to the “other side”… dead.), but after that dark point I eventually decided to live in love and truth, and now I don’t care what others think of me or my sexuality. My mother, father, and sister know that I’m gay, and so do all of my friends, and they all love me for me, so I’m glad I didn’t go through with it. I was so into what others thought of me that I didn’t see how blessed I was/am.

  5. Sometimes in the life when there iris so much negative talk and degrading words it can lead to critical moments in others lives. I think it is much easier for people to come out now than before. I have never felt that because I am gay to commit suicide, but sometimes you can become depressed over other things.

  6. I clearly wish that I was like most of you in my early years grappling with the fact that I was gay. It’s the sense of isolation one experiences. Isolation may be subjected to one’s own interpretation but generally, it’s the feeling of being alone, no one who can understand and correlate with you. Coupled with the type of social environment that you are in, (homophobic parents etc) it can exacerbate the problem. I tried and though about it a couple times but failed. Looking back, I’m glad that I failed because I no longer have those feelings. I no longer have self hatred for something that I couldn’t control. And Man was right on both aspects. When you do experience peen / ass, you really rejoice in the fact that you had failed at suicide. Also, having someone who is also into men also helps with the coping process.

  7. I tried to kill myself when my bf came out. What category do I fit in? That shit was absolutely devastating and I have never dated any guys since. I quit. I was used and lied to just to protect some selfish queer’s precious reputation. Forgive me for having zero sympathy for “woe is me, I’m gay” crap. -_-
