In an interview with The Guardian, Matt Damon managed to say a lot of discouraging stuff about the lives and careers of gay actors in just a couple of quotes. Here's the first dubious moment. "I think you’re a better actor the less people know about you period. And sexuality is a huge part of that. Whether you’re straight or gay, people shouldn’t know anything about your sexuality because that’s one of the mysteries that you should be able to play.'" And here's the second, a strange review of out actor Rupert Everett's recent career. "I remember thinking and saying, Rupert Everett was openly gay and this guy — more handsome than anybody, a classically trained actor — it’s tough to make the argument that he didn’t take a hit for being out." It's only been a couple of weeks since the term "Damonsplaining »

It’s a tired old Hollywood cliche: Writer spends the entire movie trying to pound out either a decent screenplay or the great American novel, and just as he (or she) is about to give up, they ditch that project and decide to write something sincere instead. With “The Meddler,” that’s not the story in the movie, but the true story of the movie. While not a direct apology for her abominable directorial debut, “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,” writer-director Lorene Scafaria’s sophomore feature returns to what works for her, drawing upon personal experience to deliver a heartfelt dramedy audiences are sure to appreciate. Bound to be among Sony Picture Classics’ top 2016 performers, “The Meddler” serves as a lovely valentine not just to her mom, Gail, but to mothers everywhere — including the luminous Susan Sarandon in a role that seems to come naturally.

When I took to the stage at the Oscars in 2009 and promised that Lgbt people of this country would soon know full federal equality, I was chastised by more than a few politicians and most movement leaders for pushing too hard too soon. So, for half a decade, I put my film work on the back burner and joined with others to help ensure that this promise became a reality.
Today, with a 5-4 decision at the U.S. Supreme Court, a monumental piece of this promise was realized. And it is clear this victory was won because Lgbt citizens and our allies made ourselves visible, sharing our personal stories on stage and screen, and in courtrooms and living rooms. It’s much harder to look your own sister, son or neighbor in the eye and tell them their love isn’t the same as yours, or that their family deserves less. »

Activist David Mixner stood alone on a theater stage in Los Angeles at the start of this year’s Gay Pride Month, sharing his memories with an audience of friends, political figures and a smattering of celebrities, about the time Ronald Reagan saw the light.
It was 1978, and aides to Reagan, who was on the cusp of launching his presidential campaign, believed he was ready to endorse a California initiative to ban gays and lesbians from teaching in the state’s classrooms, a ballot proposition inspired by the anti-gay crusades of singer Anita Bryant.
Mixner remembered when he and fellow activist Peter Scott landed a secret meeting with Reagan, who was exceedingly charming and willing to listen. Mixner warned the soon-to-be candidate that the initiative would create anarchy: Students could retaliate for a bad grade by accusing their teachers of being gay.
Reagan didn’t immediately reveal what he was going to do, »

There’s a vast and growing list of prominent gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender media and entertainment figures — just don’t count movie stars among them.
Celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Caitlyn Jenner and Neil Patrick Harris have kicked open the closet door with little to no damage to their careers. In some cases, they’ve found themselves more in demand after revealing their sexual preferences or gender identification.
Yet there’s one glass ceiling that remains stubbornly resistant to cracks.
No A-list film actor has yet to come out publicly while at the pinnacle of his or her career. Sure, Jodie Foster gave an elliptical Golden Globes speech about being a lesbian, and out actors Ian McKellen and Zachary Quinto helped anchor the “X-Men” and “Lord of the Rings” series, and the rebooted “Star Trek” films, respectively. Yet despite their prodigious talents, none of them has the power to »
