Re: St. Petersburg International Film Festival / "Guest of Honor" Invitation

Dear Ms. Averbakh: Thank you for your kind invitation. As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes. However, as a gay man, I must decline. I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government. The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly. Perhaps, when and if circumstances improve, I'll be free to make a different choice. Until then. Wentworth Miller Member, HRC Member, GLAAD Member, The ManKind Project cc.
