He’s Gay: Jim Nabors Got Married
Congratulations to Jim Nabors! The 82 years-old actor and singer, known for his role as Gomer Pyle on The Andy Griffith Show, came out of the closet with a bang last night when it was announced that he was wed to his partner of 38 years, Stan Cadwallader.
“I haven’t ever made a public spectacle of it,” he told Hawaii News Now. “Well, I’ve known since I was a child, so, come on. It’s not that kind of a thing. I’ve never made a huge secret of it at all… This is really no big deal. My friend and I, my partner, we went through all of this 38 years ago, so I mean, we made our vows and that was it. It was to each other, but nevertheless, we were a couple.”
As much as it’s great to see someone like Matt Dallas open up about his sexuality, there’s something special about an old Hollywood type like Nabors coming forward and living his truth in the public eye. The gayest part of me wants to give him a call and say, “Do you, Jim! Do you!”, but I don’t have his phone number and that would be atrociously awkward.
