Doctor Who: Russell T Davies Speaks Out About ‘Influential Gay’ Title
Doctor Who writer and executive producer, Russell T Davies has spoken out against a poll in the Independent, which named him the most influential gay man in the UK.
Speaking to the Pink Paper, Davies said: “B******s, am I hell! I had nothing to do with that decision.
“I mean I hope, I think, I do good work and I’ll be very visible as a gay man because I think that’s very important, but in terms of being influential when there are people out there fighting for changes in the law, homophobia in schools. That’s influence.”
He added: “What’s influential? I mean it’s a funny old question, who’s the most influential straight person in the world?
“We don’t apply that question to straight people. The category itself is slightly demeaning.”
