Somewhere along the line, playing gay has gone from making you flavour of the month to leaving a strange taste.
That might need a little rephrasing there, Guardian.
As to the larger point they’re trying to make well, if straight should no longer play gay then presumably gay should no longer play straight. Which is, given the tastes of the personnel in the industry, going to be more than a little restrictive, no?
Of course, we could always decide that it’s all about playing dress up and we can evaluate individuals on that basis – how well do they play dress up? But then that last is sensible and therefore has no chance today.
