Brazilian actor Johnny Massaro recently came out as gay at the premiere of his new film, The First Fallen. The film is about the first year of the AIDS Crisis in Brazil and focuses on the first people to contract HIV in a coastal town. Massaro plays a young biology student named Suzano. Massaro, 30, told Brazil’s POPline that one of the reasons for the announcement was “I couldn’t talk about this film if I couldn’t speak publicly about my sexuality.” “It was necessary for me to have patience because, unfortunately, we live in a world that is still very prejudiced.” He also revealed that he’s been in a relationship with his childhood friend, law professor João Pedro Accioly, since early 2021.
