James lafferty, star of the hit TV show One Tree Hill, announced last Friday, December 29th, that he is gay. He had this to say "I've had these feelings since I was a teenager but I was always scared of what people would think. Now i feel confident that my fans will stand by me even if I'm gay."
He also revealved that he is currently dating a 24 year old man from Rochester County named Jake Hobsfield. "James is just great," said Jake, "He is somebody that I can be myself with."
Only time will tell what this will mean for James's carreer. It may have a negative effect because much of his popularity was gained from his sexual appeal. Once again, only time will tell.
