Nicholas Downs Is a 'Trailblazer'

Nicholas Downs is the latest actor to make a video for James Duke Mason's Trailblazer Campaign. I'd never heard of him -- he's adorable -- but he says his sexuality only became an issue when he played his first gay character -- in the film "Is It Just Me?" -- and then reporters all started asking him if he was gay in real life. It's an interesting story -- and might explain why so many "gay" roles are played by straights and/or why so many "straights" will, um, refuse to play gay roles.
