Queer Forty Interviews: Gerald McCullouch on career, strippers and his journey to over forty

“It’s been a fun ride. I’m probably most appreciative of being a bit wiser than I was in my earlier years. I lived life pretty hard and it still has its ups and downs but I’m glad I’m at a place where I respect the journey more than I did in my younger years and can take it all with a grain of salt. Which now matches my hair!”

“It isn’t my place to tell anyone else how to live their life. But when you’re at a place in your life and career where you have the ability to affect young people who might take their lives and make drastic choices because of their sexual orientation – isn’t it time to step up to the plate and give them a voice? And hope?”

“I’m scared of the political divide in America at present. And the lack of true equality for every person. The actions and words of many people who are living in a fear based, non-educated world of spin and misunderstanding are breading hate on a daily basis. And this freaks me out.”

“To me, any choices made out of fear, are probably not the best choices to make. But to each his own. It’s all about being happy.”

“…First let me say that there are so, so, so many aspects of being part of CSI and aspects of the show itself that I think are out of this world incredible.
