In 2008, MacFarlane comes out as gay
In an exclusive interview with the Globe and Mail before the final season of Brothers & Sisters aired in April 2008, MacFarlane came out as gay. He wasn’t sure what would happen to his career if he addressed himself as gay, but he decided to be true to himself, and the response was overwhelmingly positive.
However, fans anticipated MacFarlane’s coming out as gay for a long time due to his on-screen gay portrayal on Brothers & Sisters. So the announcement didn’t come as a complete surprise.
Wentworth Miller, MacFarlane’s Rumored Gay Partner
If you are unfamiliar with Wentworth Miller, he is the hottie who plays Michael Schofield in the American television series Prison Break. Many believe he is MacFarlane’s gay partner or, more likely, his future husband. According to reliable sources, MacFarlane was dating his partner, Wentworth. He had remained silent about their relationship because Wentworth had not come out as gay. But that all changed in 2013.
According to Distractify, the couple has been together since 2007, long before either came out. According to the source, they were even considering moving together. However, in 2013, Wentworth confirmed his sexual orientation in a letter posted on the GLAAD website after declining an invitation to a Russian film festival due to the Russian government’s treatment of gay people.
The real question is whether Wentworth is still MacFarlane’s gay partner. So far, neither of them has commented on the rumors, and we can’t even follow MacFarlane on social media because he rarely uses Twitter or Instagram.
Who is MacFarlane’s partner?
The timing was ideal, given that MacFarlane was getting married on-screen to his on-screen husband, Kevin Walker, played by Matthew Rhys, in the upcoming episode of Brothers & Sisters. He was unsure what would bring him down professionally, but he wanted to be true to himself, so he revealed that he is gay. Even before coming out as gay, MacFarlane was rumored to be dating Grey’s Anatomy actor TR Knight.
However, those rumors died quickly after MacFarlane became involved in speculation about his partner being Wentworth Miller in June 2007. But, whoever MacFarlane’s partner is, let’s hope he’s in a happy gay relationship.
