#1 Ian McKellan: Half Hollywood is Gay

Postby fountainhall » Thu May 24, 2018 9:49 am

Since coming out as gay 30 years ago, the celebrated actor Sir Ian McKellan has never hesitated to promote the gay agenda and to help gay causes. There's a short article in today's Guardian newspaper about a recent interview he gave to Time Out. It centres on Hollywood's failure to portray minorities on screen.

"Nobody looks to Hollywood for social commentary, do they? They only recently discovered that there were black people in the world. Hollywood has mistreated women in every possible way throughout its history. Gay men don’t exist.

McKellen credited 1998’s Gods and Monsters – in which he played director James Whale – as triggering a new climate of acceptance in the industry, saying it “was the beginning of Hollywood admitting that there were gay people knocking around, even though half of Hollywood is gay”

Which surely leads to a degree of speculation. Which actors and other personalities might be the closet gays he refers to?
