Jordan Gavaris who plays Felix, a gay character in the show Orphan Black is asked about the feedback he receives from the LGBT community.
i’ve only seen the first couple of eps of Orphan Black but i LOVED felix and i’m so glad the actor is so thoughtful about his character.
Brilliant brilliant brilliant:
“There’s so many more interesting things to Felix than who he’s sleeping with.”
I really don’t understand why this is such a difficult concept for people (and by ‘people’ I mostly mean straight people, but also a large number of bi/pan-phobic people too) to understand? I mean, I know that we, as a society, are obsessed with who’s sleeping with who even when they’re straight but – Oh, wait. I think I’m getting it.
Gay, straight, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, cisgendered, transgendered, genderqueer: There are so many more interesting things to you than who you’re sleeping with.
When my friends have kids to whom I am Crazy Aunt Van, this is what I want them to know.
Oh tumblr. You will understand how I accidentally stayed up until 6.30am watching “But I’m a Cheerleader” for the first time.
Because the questions is, where has this movie been all my life?Tags: awesome, but i'm a cheerleader, lgbtq
