    NYT: In February, Odin Biron, an American actor who plays a naïve American son of two gay fathers in the hugely popular Russian medical sitcom “Interns,” took a calculated risk. He disclosed that he was gay.

    At first, there were a few tense weeks. His colleagues were shocked. His agent advised him not to talk to the tabloid media. On the show’s fan pages, some viewers wrote of their disgust or cried conspiracy theory. Mr. Biron said he was advised not to take the metro.

    Coming out is hard enough without fearing for your safety.

    I hope he is a catalyst for positive change, he's certainly taken on a burden by becoming a lightning rod for LGBT-hating bigots.
