Sony Mogul Amy Pascal Tells Hollywood to Get Over Gay Slurs and Stereotypes

“Not every gay character needs to be defined by his or her sexuality,” Sony co-chair Amy Pascal said in a speech at last night’s LA Gay & Lesbian Center gala. “Can’t being gay just be one stitch in the fabric of someone’s life? Can’t we depict men and women who just so happen to be gay – perhaps a lawyer or soldier or business executive or scientist or engineer.” Read Pascal’s full comments, in which she encourages her peers in Hollywood to cut the gay slurs and stereotypes out of the movies they make, at Deadline.
