Newly-openly gay actor Neil Patrick Harris (aka – Doogie Howser) is featured in an interview in the March 2 Entertainment Weekly magazine. He is profiled in what EW bills as “his first chat since announcing he’s gay.”
In the interview, Harris states one of the most eloquent, simple and yet multi-layered facts about him being a gay actor. It is definitely the quote of the week for me:
But as happy as Harris is to be out, he’d be even happier if we could just stop talking about it. “As much as I respect advocacy, I don’t feel that my job description is ‘advocate.’ My job description is ‘jester.'”
Bravo. If only Harris could talk some sense into the Dixie Chicks and Barbara Streisand, we’d all be better for it.
