Actor Daniel Franzese says it’s high time that Hollywood started paying attention to queer guys with larger than a 32 inch waists.
“There are a lot of shows on TV right now showing queer stuff, but they just don’t sexualize bigger gay men,” the Looking star recently told TMZ in an interview.
Franzese went on to say there’s a noticeable lack of diversity in body types in both films and television, adding that “gay bigger people are invisible” in the industry.
With one exception.
Ryan Murphy, Franzese said, is the “leader” when it comes to showcasing diversity of all kinds in his cast. But even even he could do better.
“He doesn’t have any sexualized bigger guys in any of his programming,” he said. “Nobody does right now. I’d be working, if they did!”
Franzese also said he doesn’t buy the excuse that bigger guys can’t be sexy.
“I’ve never had a problem finding anybody to hook up with,” he noted, before adding that, for whatever reason, he always plays characters that can’t seem to get laid.
“All my characters have to beg people,” he said. “I don’t understand!”
Frankly, we don’t understand either.

Is big boy summer still a thing? There are countless smooth hard bodies on my insta feed and I'm not even following thots so I need to balance it out for the big hairy men I guess. How can one be attracted to something you don't ever see? Representing, being visible and smelling good too. (Instagram please steal this picture) #aboveaveragemen
