‘It gets better’ – Wentworth Miller offers encouragement to LGBTs

He’s spoken candidly about depression, defended himself against body shaming and now Wentworth Miller has delivered an inspirational message to the LGBT community.

Speaking to Attitude magazine as he’s named its Man of the Year, the 44-year-old actor reassured those struggling with their sexuality that it gets easier with time.

The star – who will make his television comeback as part of next year’s Prison Break reboot – said: “I would say what others have said: it gets better one day, you’ll find your tribe.”  

“You just have to trust that people are out there waiting to love you and celebrate you for who you are,” he continued.

Acknowledging that coming to terms with one’s sexuality can be an isolating experience, Wentworth encouraged members of the LGBT community to focus on self-love first.

“In the meantime, the reality is you might have to be your own tribe.  You might have to be your own best friend.  That’s not something they’re going to teach you in school.  So start the work of loving yourself.”

The Golden Globe nominee publicly came out as gay in 2013 after challenging Russia’s treatment of LGBT individuals.
