Tommy Dorfman Gay, Husband, Parents

By portraying the role of one of the thirteen reasons on the beloved Netflix series "13 Reasons Why," actor/writer Tommy Dorfman gained much recognition for the character of Ryan Shavers.

On his breakthrough role, he landed the acting details to perfection. Showcasing a wide array of emotions like arrogance, selfishness, sadness, and even love, Tommy has proven his skills and worth to the entertainment industry from the very start of his career.

Is He Gay?

The 27-year-old has been open about his sexuality from the very get-go.

He used to dress up in girl clothes, but after being bullied for it, he stopped and started wearing guys clothes instead. However, it was only in terms of appearance that he looked straight. Deep inside, his feelings were intact. A young Tommy even tried to dating girls in high school, but it didn't work out.

At the age of 14, Tommy fell in love with a much younger guy from high school. Though they never were an item, it helped him clear thing out and understood his hidden feelings. Soon after his realization, he came out as gay.

Married To Supportive Husband

Influenced by the desire to submerge in narcotics, Tommy was in a pinch during his early 20's. Dependent on different party drugs - mostly cocaine - Tommy didn't believe he would live much more than the age of 25.

Now a 27-year-old, living a healthy and prosperous life, the 13 Reasons Why actor credits it to the love of his life husband, Peter Zurkuhlen.

A few months into the dating scene, the openly gay actor recieved a heart-to-heart conversation from his lover about his issue. He had wanted to get sober for a long time but decided to seek help after his then-boyfriend Peter's request.

Getting clean eventually, Tommy got engaged to then-boyfriend Peter in April of 2015. A year later, they got married in a beautiful ceremony in Portland, Maine on 12 November 2016. 

As of 2019, the lovers are enjoying a happy married life and share an apartment in New York City.
