Award-winning actor Jim Parsons reveals he’s gay and in a 10-year relationship, according to a New York Times profile.
Parsons, best-known as Sheldon Cooper on the CBS sitcom The Big Bang Theory, discusses his work in last year’s production of The Normal Heart, Larry Kramer’s searing chronicle of the AIDS epidemic in New York City during the early 1980s. The Times’ Patrick Healy writes, “The Normal Heart resonated with him on a few levels: Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship…”
Parsons’ sexuality is only referenced once, in passing:
The Normal Heart resonated with him on a few levels: Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship, and working with an ensemble again onstage was like nourishment, he said. [x]
As far as I know, he said once he hasn’t got any plans about marriage at the moment, but he and his boyfriend are still together
