Former “Backstrom” and “The Secret Circle” star Thomas Dekker announced that he was gay in July 2017 in a Twitter (and Instagram) post which complained that he had been outed by a “Heroes” writer during an awards acceptance speech: “While it is an odd situation, I thank him because it presents a prime opportunity for me to publicly say that I am indeed a man who proudly loves other men. In fact, this April, I married my husband and I could not be happier.”
