The actor explained,
"Nobody ever asks me. I’ve never been asked. Like, the whole course of the series. I guess that’s where I’m at in terms of coming out publicly. I had this position when I started on the show that it shouldn’t matter. And I believe that.
"I hope that one day, the world gets to a place where you don’t need to politicize your sexuality any more than someone needs to politicize their race — that we can just act and we can exist in this Zeitgeist, telling stories about one another."
"And that no one’s afraid, maybe, to come out. But also that no one’s really hyper-obsessed with knowing whether or not someone’s gay. That would be an amazing world to live in, where people don’t feel the need to protect themselves and other people don’t feel the need to launch an inquisition."
Gavaris also shared how he feels being an open gay in Hollywood and it might affect his career. The star has regularly been praised for his LGBTQ portrayal.
