“Nurse Jackie” Actor, Haaz Sleiman Comes Out as Gay!

“Nurse Jackie” Actor, Haaz Sleiman Comes Out as Gay!

2017 has proven to be quite a year rife with prejudice and intolerance, not outright seen sense the Civil Rights Era.

Thankfully, and bravely, in the face of such ignorance by being themselves and standing up for what is right through protest and declarations of truth. One of these people is Nurse Jackie actor, Haaz Sleiman, who has come out as gay–and a bottom!

Haaz Sleiman, best known for his work on the Showtime series Nurse Jackie, has come out as gay in a new video on social media.

The 41-year-old actor said that his video was in response to a study that found that more LGBTQ Americans have been murdered in 2017 so far than in the entire year of 2016.

“I am a gay, Muslim, Arab-American man. And I’m going to take it even further: Not only am I gay, but I’m also a bottom. Not only am I a bottom, but I’m also a total bottom which means I like it up you know where,” Haaz said. “And I say this to all the homophobes living in the United States of America and across the globe… Why not? If you ever come to me, to kill me just because I’m gay… I will destroy you.”

“I might be gay and I might be a nice guy, but don’t get it twisted because I will f— you up,” he added.

This is quite a statement and a little too much information, but hey we all like what we like. Honestly, we always thought Haaz was gay, his Facebook video only confirms it. Still, being a gay, Lebanese-American,  Muslim and  coming out as a bottom on top of all that is quite a brave feat. Now, we are just waiting on his boyfriend information. You know he either has one or will soon! We will keep you posted!
