Wentworth Miller has a touching message for people struggling to come to terms with their sexuality.
The Prison Break star, 44, covers Attitude magazine's The Award Issue 2016 tells fans and readers that while there's a light at the end of the tunnel, the first steps are to love yourself first.
"I would say what others have said: it gets better one day, you'll find your tribe. You just have to trust that people are out there waiting to love you and celebrate you for who you are," Miller tells the magazine. "In the meantime, the reality is you might have to be your own tribe. You might have to be your own best friend. That's not something they're going to teach you in school. So start the work of loving yourself."
Miller came out as gay in August 2013 while protesting Russia's anti-LGBT propaganda law.
