The actor told Out magazine that he’s proud of his long relationship.

“It feels like a nice time to be celebrating something like that, especially on the heels of the DOMA and Prop 8 decisions,” he said.

On Twitter, the news that Pancholy is gay was topped for many by the fact that he’s 39 years old.
