SyFy Ghost Hunters Star Adam Berry Comes Out On Nationwide Television

This week on the latest episode of  “Ghost Hunters”, the hit  paranormal reality show on the SyFy, channel Adam Berry who joined the cast as a paranormal investigator in 2010, after winning the “Ghost Hunters Academy” competition, very matter of factly came out to the shows nationwide audience.

Adam’s intention was to make a connection with the spirits of the gay men whose lives had been lost in a  fire, at the Upstairs Lounge in New Orleans, Louisiana one of the most deadly attacks on LGBT people in United States history

According to the reports, an arsonist set fire to the original building in 1973, killing 32 men who tried desperately to escape through windows without success. Because the establishment was frequented by the gay community, many families were afraid to claim the bodies of those lost in the fire. As a result, many were buried in unmarked graves.  And in an attempt to connect with the deceased, Adam Berry revealed that he, too, was gay and that the spirits had nothing to be afraid or ashamed of.

Berry married his long-time lover, Ben Griessmeyer, in August of 2012. But until this week, no mention of his sexual orientation or recent marriage had been mentioned on “Ghost Hunters”.

A tweet from his Twitter account dated Sept. 20, suggests that some fans did not react favorably.

To those complaining: I said I was gay during the show b/c I wanted 2 connect 2 the spirits that were lost. FYI been ‘out’ for a decade! LOL” says Berry.

But most fans while some expressed surprise by the announcement, congratulated him for his courage.

From Back2Stonewall.com Adam CONGRATULATIONS on your recent marriage and for so matter of factly being an out gay man on television.

We could use a lot more like you.

Gay Geek WOOF! – Warehouse 13’s Eddie McClintock Proves Why Gay Geeks Love Gladiators

Video – Syfy Channel’s “Warehouse 13” New Main Character Steve Jinks Comes Out: “I’m Gay.”

SyFy Channel’s hit show Warehouse 13  introduced a new male lead in addition to the usual cast last week named Steve Jinks, nicknamed “Jinksy” played by Aaron Ashmore best known to us geeks as playing  Jimmy Olsen on the recently ended Smallville.

After last weeks character introduction of Agent Jinks in which we find out that Agent Jinks is not only a great field agent but also a Buddhist and can always tell when someone is lying.

In this week s episode titled “Trials”  more of  Steve Jinks charcater comes out quite literally when  the charcater of Claudia thinks Jinx is hitting on her, and after teasing him some more and making Jinx uncomfortable with the implication that he is into her, Jinx reassures her that he was in no way attempting to come on to her, because he is in fact, gay.  And the best thing about it?  Nothing shocking and not earth shattering.  That was it.  It’s just a bit of character information and not a part of plot or the main storyline. 

According to series-creator Jack Kenny “Syfy suggested it. We were pitching this character and a couple of the execs are gay and said, “What if Steve was gay?” We immediately jumped on the idea — but it’s just a part of who he is, it doesn’t define the character.”

Congratualtions to Warehouse 13 and the Syfy Channel for taking notice that being gay does not define a charcater and in turn writing a Gay character, openly gay, openly gay and male, and openly gay and male and cute, and not an obvious gay stereotype. Other television series should stand up, take notice and follow the lead.

Scene starts at the 6:00 mark

Syfy Channel’s "Warehouse 13" Adds Gay Character In Third Season

Aaron Ashmore who played the role of Jimmy Olsen on the recently ended Smallville will be jumping to another fantasy show that of Warehouse 13 on the SyFy channel.  Ashmore will play suit-clad special agent Steve Jinks who has the ability to tell when someone is lying and also who just happens to be gay.

According to series-creator Jack Kenny “Syfy suggested it. We were pitching this character and a couple of the execs are gay and said, “What if Steve was gay?” We immediately jumped on the idea — but it’s just a part of who he is, it doesn’t define the character.”

And that is exactly what television needs more of.  Characters who being gay is just who they are.  Not what the characters all about.

Season 3 of Warehouse 13 debuts on July 11 at 9:00 pm on the SyFy channel
