Kelly McGillis comes out of the closet
From wwtdd, Kelly McGillis, who you may remember from “Top Gun” but probably don’t, has come out as a lesbian, shocking everyone, at least until they look at a recent picture of her.
“I’m done with the man thing. I did that, I need to move on in life. That’s another part of being true to yourself…that’s been a challenge for me personally.”
“I think [accepting being homosexual] that was an ongoing process from the time I was about 12. I had a lot of things happened that convinced me that God was punishing me for being gay. That was a hard process.”
It’s getting really tedious to hear people talk about how hard it is to be gay. I support just about every prejudice you can think of and even I bailed on that one. Everyone I know makes gay and racist jokes, no one I know would ever actually discriminate. I’m sure it sucks when you’re 12 and some handsome popular kid is pinning you down and putting dead birds in your mouth, but in my defense I was dared to. It was out of my hands.
