Sir Ian McKellen Wants Gay People to Support Trans People

You would think just based on common sense that all gay men support all trans people, however, that’s not always the case. I see transphobic comments all the time on Twitter from gay men…usually older gay men. The know-it-alls. And it really irritates the hell out of me. I can’t help but wonder how a gay man can possibly know so little about trans people. Ever since the first time I entered a gay bar when I was in college I have known trans people, and it never even occurred to me to NOT support them. So I totally agree with Ian McKellen on this one. 

It’s a talk with Olly Alexander that was done through TikTok. 

In the chat, the 81-year-old compared the hardships faced by many in the trans community to what the gay community lived through when he was younger.

Here’s more.  It’s really still a matter of learning more. 


“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
