Y&R's Greg Rikaart Comes Out On Twitter

By SOD Posted: Jun 29, 2013

Y&R star Greg Rikaart, who has never publicly discussed his personal life but has long been an advocate for LGBT rights, made a public statement in support of the Supreme Court's ruling on DOMA by posting a sweet snapshot with his beau, writer Robert Sudduth, on Twitter. "Not getting married anytime soon, but celebrating #equality tonight nonetheless," he wrote.

See the couple here: https://twitter.com/gregrikaart/status/350140200036495360/photo/1.

I've always thought he was one of Young and the Restless' strongest actors. So I've always liked him even if the stuff his character did was a bust.

He became my hero last year, though, when he spoke up for those of us that are not heterosexual when that bully Melissa Reeves twittered her support for gay-hate. He did it with class, dignity and most importantly, civility.

LOL...I think you are talking about Melissa and Joan Rivers. He's talking about an actress from Days.

BTW....Joan Rivers is the sh$t. Lol

IMO...GR is now a mediocre actor on the show. He turns sh#t into runny sh%t. Totally bland. He reminds me of the male version of Heinle.

Oh wow, folks are getting homophobic witch Melissa Reeves confused with Melissa Rivers, daughter of comedy legend Joan Rivers, a woman who has a Madonna-like following of gays.

LOL, that could be interesting. :eyeroll:

Well i am glad that he found someone to share his life.
Many fans called it several years ago that he might be gay.

No surprise .. It's too bad he didn't come out long ago because Kevin just has no chemistry with any woman on Y&R unless its with Jana but we'll probably never see her any time soon.

I'm pretty sure the actor being gay has no standing on his character's sexuality. :ermm:

Anyway, congratz to him for coming out.
