Stonewall movie supports gay actors

 Glad to see Roland Emmerich, the director of the upcoming film Stonewall, addressing the casting concerns.  Which actors are gay, I would like to know, so we can support them.  I would have been very upset if none had been.  You don't make a movie about the Holocaust and not make the effort to try to cast Jewish actors.  Same here.  I don't think gays should be limited to playing gay parts, but they should get first dibs at them.  Especially, since there is a prejudice against gay actors and they don't get enough work.  We need to be more pro-active in rewarding them parts for their honesty and integrity in representing us in the industry.
