Andrew Garfield went on to clarify that he is not actually gay.
Twitter has a lot to say on the topic.
Some people are more sympathetic to his intentions.
However, the death, dread, and pain that the gay community has suffered through (as reflected in Kushner's play Angels In America) seems ironic when compared to Garfield's comment about RuPaul. We have come a long way as a community, and Garfield's comment will rub people the wrong way as long as we remember what it took to get to RuPaul's Drag Race from where we started.
