In this article, Richard E. Grant talks about whether or not straight actors should be playing gay face. It also sounds as though this is something he's thought about for a while.
This is a direct quote from Grant.
“I’ve always had that concern. The transgender movement and the #MeToo movement means, how can you justify heterosexual actors playing gay characters?
“We are in a historic moment. If you want someone to play a disabled role, that should be a disabled actor… I understand why and how [the current change of mood has] come about.”
Here's a link to read more. There are comments, and as I've said before this discussion is going to continue. I think the most important thing he states in this article is about the "change of mood." And as you can see it's not just about straight actors playing LGBTQ roles. This goes much deeper, especially when it comes to disabled people.
MMA Fighter Jason Ellis On Bisxeual Men
I've always been a fan of things like MMA and jiu-jitsu, or anything that challenges the body and the mind. So when I read this article I had to share it.
It's an interesting piece by Jason Ellis where he discusses being married to a woman and being bisexual at the same time. I find it fascinating and I totally understand it.
He goes much deeper than just the surface. He talks about how gay men will often dismiss him because they don't understand bisexuality, and how much it hurts to be rejected by the LGBTQ community. I'm glad he's writing about it because I've seen this before so many times I lost count. I'm a gay man and I understand it, but so many gay men simply don't get it.
In any event, here's a link to the entire piece. It's well written and it comes from the heart.
