Neil Patrick Harris On Why He Came Out: “I Fell In Love”


For me, I fell in love with a dude and started spending all my time with him. And therefore, you don’t want to be suppressive of that. And so as I started working more frequently, with more eyes on us, I figured that that was inevitability and the opposite would be, again, suppressive. I didn’t want to disrespect David. I didn’t want to make David feel like he didn’t exist in my life, and at the same time I didn’t want David’s identity to be the guy that’s dating me. It’s a very individual thing.”

      Aside from being hot and talented, he seems like a genuinely lovely person.

      Gag me – you can’t rewrite History NPH – we all know you came out to prevent being outed by Perez – oh wait – the Republicans rewrite history all the time, so maybe he can.

      Bale and Tazz nailed it. Kinda hard to stay in the closet when Perez posted multiple pictures of you and David holding hands and snuggling in public.

      The real question isn’t why Perez ran the pictures. It’s why, if Neil and David felt so comfortable doing that in public did the rest of the media conspire to KEEP him in the closet?

      @Cam: By rest of the media you mean the non-scumbags?

      Perez seems douchy, but if Neil was walking around holding hands with his boyfriend and snuggling in public, I don’t think it is a scumbag move to actually publish a picture the same way any celeb showing affection in public would expect a pic of them to possibly be published.
