"Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller has just revealed he's a gay man ... in a statement that reads as a giant "F YOU" to Russia.

The 41-year-old actor fired off a letter to the director of the St. Petersburg International Film Festival -- rejecting its invitation for him to travel to the Motherland for the event ... and in the letter, WM went public about his sexuality for the first time.

"Thank you for your kind invitation. As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes. However, as a gay man, I must decline."

Miller continues ... "I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government."

"The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly."

He added, "If circumstances improve, I'll be free to make a different choice."

It's ridiculous that the games are still being allowed to go on in Russia. If they called for the arrest of black people, Obama would call for a boycott. But when gay people are threatened with arrest, it warrants a chuckle from him.

I don't care what he does in his own bedroom! I don't care that he is an actor! I am sorry, Wentworth is a Princeton grad! That is noteworthy! That is worth some sincere respect- no easy task! Anyone good looking can be in Hollywood, we see that in all forms of media! But to be a Princeton grad, no easy task my friends, no easy task! Go tigers!

Are we delusional? He came out years ago, right around the time of the ending of Prison Break. This was NO surprise. I do give him kudos for his well written letter--very gracious and educational without being whiny or preachy
