Sir Ian McKellen: “Gay Men Are More Masculine Than Straight Men”

I’ve probably played even more military men than Patrick [Stewart]. Gandalf is a soldier, Magneto is a soldier, Richard III, Coriolanus, Macbeth. And I think the reason is because I want my revenge on them all…The people who start wars, perpetuate them and glory in them. ‘God save our gracious Queen, send her victorious?’ I’m sorry. What does that mean?… If that’s what masculinity is then I don’t want any part of it at all…. I think gay men are more masculine than straight men. Because, guess what? They love other men!…So when bully boys say: ‘Faggot!’ you say, ‘That’s right, I’m with the boys.’””Sir Ian McKellen, in an interview with The Evening Standard, in which he talks about his proclivity towards warrior roles.
