Trevante Rhodes Gay or Straight in Real Life? Let us add Trevante Rhodes to our list of black actors in gay movie roles. Trevante is starring in Moonlight which is being dubbed as one of the best movies of 2016. To date, the film about two gay black men has 99% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
So is Trevante Rhodes gay or straight in real life? He is straight. But, like the other black men in our list, is supportive of the LGBT community. More about Trevante’s LGBT involvement from Out Magazine:
Rhodes is straight, but his close relationships with gay men and adjacencies to queer environments helped him sympathize with Chiron and connect with Moonlight’s emotional texture. One of Rhodes’s first friends in Dallas came out two years ago, and the pair remain best friends. “I knew what he went through, and I knew how hard it was for him to find himself,” Rhodes says. “We all have our insecurities.” A frequenter of clubs of all sorts, Rhodes says he was at West Hollywood’s gay hot spot the Abbey on the night before Orlando’s Pulse nightclub shooting.
And here’s Trevante on the challenges of being black, being gay, and being a gay black man in today’s America:
Our country is sh*t right now. Being a black person in America right now is sh*t, being a homosexual in America right now is shit, and being a black homosexual is the bottom for certain people. That’s why I’m so excited for people to see Moonlight. I don’t feel like there’s a solution for our problems, but this movie might change people. That’s why you do it — because you feel like you’re doing something that matters. This is someone’s story.
This sure is a movie we’d like to go watch for ourselves to see if its really as good as reviewers say it is. It is currently on limited release and we are hoping it expands so we’ll get to watch it.
