Still, it seems it was necessary for the New York Times to casually tack the word "gay" to the end of a fairly lengthy profile in today's paper in order to make it official. The piece also notes that Parsons is "in a 10-year relationship," which anyone listening to his award acceptance speeches would have known, considering he regularly thanks his partner Todd Spiewak when he wins.
But I guess there's a difference between knowing something and saying it out loud, so congrats to Jim Parsons on being officially gay. And congrats to Colin Powell on being in favor of same-sex marriage.
Overall a good day, gay-wise.
