Taylor Garrett, 27
Taylor, the gay Christian Republican, is sure to be Dallas‘ most divisive character. He also has relationship drama with Levi (who doesn’t?), but his most interesting aspects are definitely his southern-fried political and religious views. When asked about his politics and faith—which he brings up all the time—Taylor said, “you don’t hear a lot about gay Christian Republicans.” (Um, there’s a reason for that, hon.)
But Taylor wants to represent an different lifestyle within the gay community: “I want people to be able to see [me] and know that you don’t have to live on the Democrats’ plantation and be their slave just because you’re gay.” He repeated this line at least one more time during the course of the evening and it was met with audible groans from just about everyone who heard it—and major eye-roll action from Phillip, the cast’s lone A-Lister of color.
