  • Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi to Atend Gay Pride March

Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi are two gay individuals among many who will be attending the Gay Pride March which is to take place on Sunday.

Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi are well-known individuals in their own right. And they will arrive in convertibles along the thoroughfare that is Fifth Avenue in the Gay Pride March that will occur on Sunday. In the capacity of grand marshalls at the event, they will however be attending it for the very first time.

They have appeared together in the PBS situational comedy program Vicious. And they both were left pondering what they ought to do at the happening besides wave to the throngs on the pavements on either side of the road. 

Jacobi said that he was open to any experience no matter how bizarre it might seem to any ordinary bloke. He has appeared previously in “I, Claudius” as well as many other stage shows.

As for McKellen, he was the main man of X-Men and Lord of the Rings. He spoke of how he was looking forward to the event that would probably prove to be a happy occasion of camaraderie and brotherhood.  

As the two stars, who happen to be gay, went to the LGBT Community Center in West Village, they got an education in gay pride and especially after the supreme court ruling in favor of gay marriage, it was a case of power to the homosexuals and lesbians.

They both commented on their personal lives and how at some point in time they had to come out of the closet if only for the sake of their individual sanity. While they may be in the parade for the simple reason that they too want to have some fun, in fact it was also to show that the times have changed for the better. 

We are indeed living in a much more liberal and tolerant era than the dark and vicious past when all sorts of prejudices and discrimination took place. The two have already played gay pals on the platform of PBS sitcom Vicious. And they want to act as spokespersons for the LGBT community.

In real life, they met each other when they were students and there was an instant attraction as regards gender interests and career moves. However, they point out the fact that it was not mentioned in public, way back then (the 50s). Yet today we exist in a whole different epoch when gays and lesbians can openly display their sexual status without fear of reprisal (at least in the Free World).
