In an interview with the Village Voice, the 23-year-old actor replied with one simple word when asked if he was openly gay: "Yes." He added, "I'm rolling with the punches here. I was asked if I was comfortable doing gay press. I said, 'Of course.' I didn't think I'd be coming out. But why not now? I think it's the right time to say something."

Although his show was canceled, no worries there. He'll star in another MTV show, Kenzie's Scale, which he compares to a "radical young Will & Grace."

Paul pointed out, "It's about a high school sweetheart couple who move to New York for college. He has this gay awakening when they get there. So they continue living together more as friends than lovers. I believe that in 100 years, none of us will be having to identify ourselves as gay, straight, bi, or otherwise. Sexuality will be a more fluid thing."
