The actors behind daytime television's cutest and only gay couple come clean for National Coming Out Day. At first Noah seemed devoted to button-nosed Maddie thereby maintaining his heterosexual veneer , but by the end of the summer, he and Luke were sharing confidences…and big juicy kisses. Just in time for National Coming Out Day on Thursday, October 11, Silbermann and Hansis spoke with The Advocate about the attention the story line has generated, their on- and offscreen relationship, and what deep, dark secrets they're ready to reveal. Van, you've been playing Luke for almost two years. Is it nice to have him in a relationship instead of just being the angst-ridden gay kid? Van Hansis: I'm totally psyched that we've been able to open the character up some more.

I was thrilled to get the part even though it was originally slated for only three months. On the other hand, if "Noah Mayer" connected with the audience, if there was a spark of chemistry between him and his hopeful amour "Luke Snyder" wonderfully portrayed by Van Hansis , a series regular, maybe I would get to stick around awhile. Lo and behold, that three-month slate turned into a three year run and I became half of the first gay daytime "Super Couple," even gracing a footnote in Time magazine. As fan mail started pouring in I began to realize that for many people, these characters and their budding relationship provided something special. It's pretty unusual to receive letters from people of all ages thanking you for helping them find themselves and come out to their family and friends. I was genuinely surprised and touched by the outpouring of emotion and gratitude I was receiving.

Before you accuse me of being a homophobe, I'm gay. Just curious who the open and closeted gay soap actors are. Anyone else? I've also heard a lot of rumors about Michelle Stafford Michelle's been linked with several women though, and I frankly have always gotten very strong lesbian vibes from her when I see her in interviews.
