Wentworth, 41, turned down the director’s offer to travel to Russia for the event, saying he objects to the Russian government’s treatment of gay men and women!

 

This is surely a display of great confidence and Wentworth can be applauded for taking this invitation to the film festival as an opportunity to stand up for his fellow gays in Russia!

He wrote in his letter:

“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.”

Wentworth, went on to say,

“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.”

If circumstances improve, I’ll be free to make a different choice,” he added.

Way to stand up for what you believe in, Wentworth!

 

We’re so proud of you!
