In a recent Variety interview, Andrew Scott, known as “Hot Priest” from Fleabag, discussed his career portraying complex, often queer characters. He emphasized the evolving cultural perceptions of LGBTQ+ people but critiqued the term “openly gay.” Scott noted that, unlike straight people, LGBTQ+ individuals are often expected to discuss their sexuality publicly. He also highlighted that while being out is progress, the terms “out” and “openly” are not interchangeable.
