He wrote: “Hollywood is a very odd place. I've been here for 12 yrs. I just pray that the LGBTQ+ community gets more chances to star in roles. We've had amazing trailblazers & ppl who've made it thru the criticism thk god. It doesn't have to be me, but this town is run by our community.”

He went on to talk about the lack of diversity in Hollywood in general. “Just because you like the same sex doesn’t mean you can’t carry a film,” he continued. “It’s not just the LGBT+ community but it’s also ppl of color, minorities… give us all a chance. Thk god its in the works. Every single person deserves a shot at their dreams no matter their sex, ethnicity, or background.”
