"What we really have to do is stop the adjective before the job title—whether it’s ‘black actor,’ a ‘gay actor’ or ‘anything actor.’ Everybody thinks that equality comes from identifying people, and that’s not where equality comes from. Equality comes from treating everybody the same regardless of who they are. I hope the media and the press catches on to that because it’s time to move out of 1992."
Matt Bomer on why it doesn’t further any LGBT cause to refer to him as a “gay actor.” Full story here - do you agree? Are labels unnecessary? (via gaywrites)
I don’t think I really refer to anyone like that, especially actors. My mind doesn’t categorize people by their sexuality. Sexual preference is a secondary characteristic that typically has no bearing on why I’m discussing a person. My thought process is mostly “Matt Bomer, plays Neal Caffrey in White Collar,” not “Matt Bomer, homosexual.”
