The Tangled Web

The big news for today is that Sean Maher, who played Simon Tam on Firefly, just came out of the closet.

Maher […] recalls that when he began his career […] he was advised by his publicists, who were unaware he’s gay, to keep his girlfriend out of the spotlight to not compromise his appeal to a female demographic. Maher says he decided against being honest to his publicist because earlier his manager, who also didn’t know of Maher’s sexual orientation, had told him to get a girlfriend so people wouldn’t presume he’s gay.
