Pride season is upon us, and this year we’re ringing it in by spotlighting the folks who make us proud to show up to work each day — the artists, activists, performers and personalities who make our community shine.
Brian Jordan Alvarez is an actor, writer and filmmaker based in Los Angeles. In addition to his many smart, sharply funny sketches, he created one of the best damn web series to ever hit YouTube with “The Gay and Wondrous Life of Caleb Gallo”. The series was named IndieWire’s best web series of 2016 and nominated for a 2016 IFP Gotham Independent Film Award for breakthrough series (not to mention a 2016 Queerties Award). Variety named Brian one of 10 comics to watch for 2017, and we just can’t get enough of him.
What are you working on right now that brings you pride?
My upcoming feature film Everything Is Free.
Describe your first pride for us.
Oh shit! I think it was me and my friend Reynaldo walking around looking for guys to hook up with! We ended up at the apartment of a friend I knew from college in a hot tub and somebody was talking about how they didn’t believe in bisexuality. I strongly disagreed, of course, and was saying that people not believing in bisexuality is what causes so many bisexuals to stay in the closet and play out their gay fantasies in unhealthy ways.
Most awkward pride moment?
When I try to be funny to guys with no sense of humor, only to realize they want me to act serious and sexy. Which maybe I can sometimes pull off.
Which city’s pride is on your bucket list?
Toronto! I don’t know why. This came to my mind.
Does Pride feel different this year? Why?
Because we’re all going to die.
Fair enough. Ultimate pride song?
Fancy by Iggy Azalea–YOU HEARD ME.
Your ideal pride outfit?
Literally nothing. Maybe a jock strap. Whatever’s legal.
This is an interview? You guys would be better off just copy and pasting as usual.
I definitely agree that bisexuality in men is of course is legit. But having “gay fantasies” doesn’t actually make you bisexual, neither does having sex with men and women. Legit sexual attraction to men and women does make you bi. His type of thinking helps support the stereotype that the majority of bi-identifying and behaving men are just straight men with infrequent megalomaniac gay urges or gay men who don’t want to live the “gay lifestyle”, are obsessed with women and/or just don’t want to be seen as homo.
He reps for Iggy? No one can ever take you seriously again.
I think you’re wrong by merely putting it at “sexual attraction” to define bisexuality.
Legit bi-guys are romantically attracted to both men and women.
Plenty of guys like having sex with other guys for fun but don’t have romantic feelings towards men ever. Those guys are not bi, imo.
