Matthew Morrison urges straight stars to support gay rights

matthew_morrison_637710 In an interview with The Independent, Matthew Morrison spoke about fighting for gay rights and pointed out that more straight actors need to realize the importance of equal rights for all people and support the cause.

He said: ”I just think it’s ridiculous that a loving and committed gay or lesbian couple can’t get married just because they’re different. The case is more impactful when it comes from a straight person because the people you’re trying to persuade may not buy into it when they see a gay person talking.”

The Glee star said that he has worked really hard to make his dreams come true and criticized TV shows such as ‘The Voice’ and ‘The X Factor’ because they promote the quick way to achieving goals, which is wrong.

matthew”Those shows make it look so easy. A lot of people on them like sensing but they want to be stars. They’re in it for the wrong reasons. There’s something about paying your dues and going through rejection. I was very excited when I got a Broadway role where my character actually had a name. Now I’m on a global TV show and I’m a lot more recognizable, but I think that I’ve earned it,” Matthew explained.
