"Trust me, 47 years in the film business is a long time," said Jodie Foster when she accepted her Cecil B. DeMille award at the Golden Globes in 2013. She should know. Foster made her acting debut in a Coppertone commercial when she was just three.

Manti, Jodie, and Privacy

I think it's the obligation of gay people to say that whether Manti's actions were the result of extreme sexual naiveté or an attempt to mask his lack of pro athlete hyper-heterosexual, these are patterns that are common in our community.

Thank You, Jodie

Thank you, Jodie. Thank you for being a model of vulnerability, authenticity and true strength. This fellow 50-year-old mom and her 20-year-old daughter both think that you are so very cool.

Jodie Foster: "When You Break Ground, Do You Get to Walk on It?"

Jason Stuart | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Jason Stuart

Jodie Foster's words really affected this over-40 actor who has felt the sting of not being the actor industry folks cast in roles that my straight counterparts get to play all the time. She made me feel less alone as an Out and not-so-young-anymore performer.

Just Leave Jodie Foster Alone

James Peron | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
James Peron

I've never been Jodie Foster. I can't say what she should have done in her circumstances -- I've never been there, nor have any of her critics. They never experienced the life she lived. What audacity to lecture her, for not living their life!

Jodie Foster: It's Complicated

Mark O'Connell, L.C.S.W. | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Mark O'Connell, L.C.S.W.

Why did Foster use this platform, this symbolically terminal moment in her career, to address her sexuality? Why expose herself (and make her publicist "nervous") if only to be defensive? Why give us what she suspects we wanted and then criticize us for wanting it?

Jodie Foster And How Not To Not Come Out At The Golden Globes

Andrew Miller | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Andrew Miller

You were at best insensitive and at worst clueless, self-absorbed and condescending in the way you spoke about the out gay men and women -- many of whom are your fans -- who are largely responsible for your ability to stay in the closet and become an award-winning actor and director.

Jodie Foster Deserves Our Respect, But Not For 'Coming Out'

Wayne Dhesi | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Wayne Dhesi

The reason I respect Foster is because she used her speech to defend her right to protect her and her family's privacy. She hasn't kept quiet specifically about her sexuality all these years; she's simply not comfortable with the idea of laying out her private life in the public domain.

The Coming-Out Speech Act: It's OK, Jodie, Saying 'I'm Gay' Is Optional

Holly R. Cashman | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Holly R. Cashman

"I am gay" or "I am a lesbian" may be the prototypical realization of the coming-out speech act, against which all other coming-out speech acts are judged. However, does this mean that it is not a coming out if the individual does not utter the words "I am gay" or "I am a lesbian"?

Jodie Foster Takes A Stand For Authenticity

Shaun Sperling | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Shaun Sperling

She took a stand for herself and at the same time said what I interpreted as a "f#@% you" to those who think that it was somehow her responsibility to declare her sexual orientation publicly. As she said in her speech, she had been out for years to those who matter and never hid who she is.

Defending Jodie Foster: Give Us A Break! We're 50!

William Dameron | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
William Dameron

For the first part of our lives, homosexuality was defined as a mental disorder. We watched AIDS devastate an entire population and listened to "respected" experts denigrate gays. Jodie, I and other late bloomers are slightly damaged, but we're doing the best we can. Give us a break.

Let's Cut Jodie Foster Some Slack

Justin Hernandez | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Justin Hernandez

We assume that public figures should automatically use the platform that comes with their celebrity status. We believe that they owe it to us to utilize their voices for agendas that we might share, and we get disappointed and angry when they don't. It's easy to forget that they are human.

Jodie Foster, You Are A Classy Lady

Peter D. Rosenstein | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Peter D. Rosenstein

Yes, she came out in a bigger way than ever before, but at the same time this was about her, not our community. It was her way of doing it, not ours. The award she accepted was for her career achievements, not for our community.

Jodie Foster and the Price of Fame

Paul Katz | Posted 01.15.2013 | Entertainment

The only manner in which she didn't come out (at least until 2007) was publicly. Her reasons for that choice are hers; perhaps one day she'll let us in on it.

Is There Room for Diversity in LGBTQ?

Gregory G. Allen

Each of us has our own story of dealing with shame, fear, and betrayal for being who we are. Each of us carries scars of wounds we've received for opening that closet door. No one can tell you how to deal with that past. Nor should anyone tell you how to come out of that closet.

The Not-So-Unbearable Loneliness of Being Jodie Foster

Sandip Roy | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices

Jodie Foster's version of coming out seems almost anachronistic, a sort of misty-eyed valentine to the way things were. But it was a different kind of coming out, ground-breaking in its own way.

In a world where gay celebrities line up in the coming out rituals, especially now that careers seem less at risk, I'm thankful to have some anchor to a different approach to being one's self.
