30 Rock actor declares he is Gay

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Hollywood didn't use to be a place where it was considered safe for actors to come out as Gay. In fact, even today some would argue the admission of your sexual preference for the same-gender, might be considered too risky for your career. But actor Maulik Pancholy, best known for his role on the NBC comedy 30 Rock, doesn't think so. Pancholy has officially come out to the public and revealed he is Gay via a new interview with Out magazine.

Gay rumors have circulated around Pancholy, 39, for a while.

Pancholy, who was placed on Out magazine's annual 'Out 100' list, told the publication about celebrating his anniversary.

'I just celebrated my nine-year anniversary with my partner,' he told the publication. 'It feels like a nice time to be celebrating something like that, especially on the heels of the DOMA and Prop 8 decisions.'

Last year Out identified him as an 'out actor' after he played Gay characters on shows like Weeds and Whitney, the Huffington Post reports.

Pancholy, who played Jonathan on 30 Rock, is also a voice actor for one of the main characters on the animated Nickelodeon program Sanjay and Craig.

The actor isn't the first openly Gay cast member of 30 Rock, however. According to the Huffington Post, Cheyenne Jackson and Tituss Burgess are both openly Gay actors.
