Jonathan Groff Served as Grand Marshall of NYC Pride Parade (PHOTOS)
Jonathan Groff (Jesse St. James) didn’t publicly come out as gay until after his run in the super-successful Broadway show Spring Awakening ended in 2008, but now the 29-year-old actor is out and very proud. Case in point: J.Groff was one of the two Grand Marshals at New York City’s Pride Parade on June 29 (the other being Orange Is the New Black’s Laverne Cox) and he looked positively thrilled to be taking part in the joyous and thrilling festivities. ;
We have no doubt that Jonathan melted the hearts of several thousand spectators as he went along the parade route in a convertible with a pal, and it makes us feel good to see him so happy. Maybe his larger than life smile even has something to do with his recent reunion with ex-boyfriend Zachary Quinto…
