You should just go for it, LIFE… The world is full of pretty queer birds. I’m high in the sky like a bird. (For the record I’m not high at the time of sending this. I wrote it last night, found it on my computer this morning, and thought it was funny. I still wanted to send it to you anonymously, judgement-free)
Well this is the best.

"I was really excited to see people who looked like me up on the stage. And I hope that’s what I do for some 14-year-old girl in the audience tonight and tomorrow and the next day after that.
You know, it’s a funny thing and it’s a sensitive thing, but I do think history has shown that the people who make change in the world are artists. We are the people who challenge society. It’s not our job but it’s part of our job to challenge our audiences to see the world through our eyes… and by challenging them to think outside the box and not to be so bound by the rules of how they think things were, there’s an opportunity to find lots of beautiful nuances in our performances. And I say that as an African-American actress who would like to play a variety of roles. I don’t want to be stuck only playing roles that are written for African American performers. I want to play Evita. I want to grow and change, and so obviously I am slightly self interested in the continuing of having non-traditional castings happen all over the world in theatre. I think that we’re on our way."
