Bravery?

I was recently pondering a statement made by a writer in which he described an actor as “brave” for portraying a gay character. Ummm, why is that considered brave? I thought the very definition of actor was a person who can portray other characters.

For many years some gay actors portrayed heterosexual characters. Was that considered brave? Nope.

Just something to ponder today.

    Indeed, that is by definition to take on a character. Nothing brave about it – other than homophobia still influences things – if you associate with homos you must be one? Yeck.
