“‘You know what? It ain’t that serious.’ My business partner told me that when I was going through a tough time and dramatizing everything in my life. Hearing it zapped me back to reality and wiped my worries away. Now when things get too intense, I remember that I’m alive, I’m healthy and life goes on—it ain’t that serious.”

 “I Don’t waste energy on things you can’t change.’ Oprah told me that one day when we were having a conversation about my weird fear of being tall—I’m already 5’4″! Instead of putting negative energy out into the universe about something that’s set in stone, like my height, she said I should turn that energy into something positive and use it to make my dreams come true. So if I end up being 7 feet, then I’ll be 7 feet.”

 “This means a great deal. Thank you so much. At a moment in time when maybe the most important thing we remember right now is the sanctity of the human spirit, it is the profound privilege of my life to play Prior Walter in Angels in America because he represents the purest spirit of humanity and especially that of the LGBTQ community. It is that spirit that says no to oppression, it is a spirit that says no to bigotry, no to shame, no to exclusion. It is a spirit that says we were all made perfectly, and we all belong. So I dedicate this award to the countless LGBTQ who have fought and died to protect that spirit. To protect that message for the right to live and love as we are created to… we are all sacred. Let’s just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked!
