"I think other actors may have played Rayon as a drag queen, and someone who enjoyed putting on women’s clothing. But, I thought it was an opportunity to put a different kind of character on screen. You follow your gut and your heart, and you do the best that you can to make people proud and to represent people with as much dignity as possible. That’s what I did, for the Rayons of the world. Of course, you can’t make everyone happy, but you try your best."
