Broadway star Bobby Steggert has 'come out' as gay.

The Tony Award-nominated stage performer, who appears in the Broadway adaptation of Big Fish, opened up about his sexuality in a new interview with Out magazine.

He made the revelation when asked about the number of gay roles he has previously played on stage, adding, "I think it's a gay actor's responsibility to give full-blooded life to gay characters."

Big Fish officially opens on Broadway next month (Oct13).
