Jodie Foster Gives Us A Glimpse Of The Future: No Labels, No Announcements, No Difference

Here's the beauty of it: There was nothing unusual about what she said. On the same night, at the same event, Adele, in her acceptance speech for the award for Best Original Song, referred to her special someone and their child. Jodie Foster did the very same thing!

Jodie Foster And The Coming-Out Process

Coming out is a personal journey that is unique to the individual. In fact, why does anyone really need to come out publicly at all? Why is it anyone's business but one's own? It has taken me years to realize that it is not up to me to tell someone how and when to come out.

Manti, Jodie, and Privacy

Guy Branum | Posted 03.24.2013 | Gay Voices

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.

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

Jason Stuart | Posted 03.24.2013 | Gay 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 03.23.2013 | Gay 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 12.05.2014 | Gay 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 03.18.2013 | Gay 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 03.17.2013 | Gay 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 03.17.2013 | Gay 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 03.17.2013 | Gay 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!

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 03.17.2013 | Gay 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 03.17.2013 | Gay 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.

The Not-So-Unbearable Loneliness of Being Jodie Foster

Sandip Roy | Posted 03.17.2013 | Gay Voices
Sandip Roy

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.

What Jodie Foster Teaches Us

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.

Why Jodie Foster's Golden Globes Speech Was So Infuriating

Karen Ocamb | Posted 03.16.2013 | Gay Voices
Karen Ocamb

Yes, she has a right to come out as she wishes, but she also has it in her to be bigger than that, to contribute what she knows about loneliness and hurt to benefit kids who don't have the love of friends and family, and she chose this awards show, this platform, to obfuscate once again.

Jodie Foster And The Queer Line Between Public And Private

Nathaniel Frank | Posted 03.16.2013 | Gay Voices
Nathaniel Frank

What seems to draw many gay people to celebrity culture is the skill that both gays and celebrities must cultivate to navigate between privacy and disclosure under the watchful eye of strangers. And if there's one thing LGBT people should agree on, it's the importance of compassion.
