A lot of LGBT people have been marginalized. Previously gay characters were played for laughs on TV or in movies, but we playing three-dimensional gay men and the audience can all see themselves whether they are straight, gay, black or white. LGBT culture has this reputation that is all drag. But we all put our pants on one leg at a time. We want to show real men and women as real people. We don’t want to give you another ‘Just Jack’ from Will & Grace. We’re past that! That’s not to say these characters can’t be seen or told anymore, but we’ve told them already.”
