Paul Iacono, 23, recently addressed his sexuality in a interview with the Village Voice.

When Michael Musto, the Voice's interviewer, asked Iacono was openly gay, the actor responded, "Yes. I'm rolling with the punches here. I was asked if I was comfortable doing gay press. I said, 'Of course.' I didn't think I'd be coming out. But why not now? I think it's the right time to say something."

Iacono's The Hard Times of RJ Berger was cancelled after one season, he will soon be seen in another MTV series called Kenzie's Scale, which he described as "a radical young Will & Grace."

Iacono elaborated on how far openly gay people have come and where things may be headed as a society, saying, "I believe that in 100 years, none of us will be having to identify ourselves as gay, straight, bi, or otherwise. Sexuality will be a more fluid thing."
