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. Link to Stonewall director interview
