When the interviewer asked Luke about the challenges he had to face as his on-screen husband is not gay, he said, "No. I’ve always been fortunate enough to be in companies where the work is the reason we’re all in the room together.
As actors, it’s our job to look for a way into our characters, regardless of our personal attitudes."
Luke said that the main reason for coming out would be that he thought it was the right time to tell the world about his orientation.
He also stated that "It can be a very destructive force professionally and personally to get caught in the habit of making moves in alignment with Hollywood standards, which frankly have always been pretty unpredictable."
Long before he came out as gay, he was still dating men. Though at that time he must have been scared what people might say to him.
Up until now, Luke has been in a relationship with four actors. All four of them are gay and Luke has been dating men, as early as the beginning of 2000. His first known encounter was with Charlie David.
It was said that both of them were something, long before Luke came out as gay. Both of them were spotted in a pretty cozy position multiple times.
