    I wasn't sure about that, are you positive?

    Definitely -- he was a columnist for The Advocate for several years during my tenure there, and he's been actively involved with Outfest. THR's reportage also identifies him as openly gay. Cheers!

    It's worth noting that he's also the first openly gay DGA president.
