Ian McKellan Downplays Anti-Gay Death Threats

mckellancharles.jpg
Ian McKellen made the decision to come out in 1988. Though loads of political and social progress has been made since then, the actor insists he still receives his fair share of anti-gay threats. None, however, are as pressing as the real violence many homos face on the day-to-day:

“There are deaths in public places on the grounds that the victim is gay,” said McKellen in a BBC interview.

“There is a violence of language which can be related to violence in action,” added McKellen a founder member of gay rights group Stonewall.

“My own death threats have declined considerably. I think I’ve become rather boring now to the public at large on this particular issue so I’m thought to be unremarkable.”

And if there’s one thing McKellen’s not, it’s unremarkable.

      Sir Ian is a true hero in many ways. It is impossible to articulate my full admiration for him.
