Cameron Monaghan Comes Out as Straight
Actor Cameron Monaghan who plays gay on the hit Showtime series ‘Shameless’, has come out as a straight guy during a Twitter chat with fans.
In ‘Shameless’, Monaghan plays gay teenager Ian Gallagher, the middle child of a struggling family in Chicago. He’s tough, he’s smart, and he’s quite sexually active. Among those he’s having an affair with the Muslim married man who owns the shop that he works at.
Monaghan had never revealed his sexuality publicly until now. In response to his Twitter followers questions yesterday, he said: “This is the only time I will answer this here: No, I’m not gay. Yes, I play a gay character. No, the question should not be relevant.”
Adding, “Thanks for the kind words, everyone. It feels a bit odd to ‘come out’ as a straight guy.”
