Can You Be 'Heterosexually Gay'? | SPEAK UP WITH JIMMY (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:


Can you be "heterosexually gay"? Actors Christian Campbell (who shot to gay icon status with his starring role in the 1999 film Trick) and his wife America Olivo (Chicago PD, Degrassi: The Next Generation, Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark) say definitively YES.

In this interview, Christian and America share with me their revelation about being heterosexual people who are "gay" in mindset -- meaning you are "authentically you." These LGBT allies call upon people to be more open-minded, to not fit into boxes, and to own your individuality.
