Ruby Rose spoke about queer icons


Ruby Rose, who was recently cast as lesbian superhero Batwoman, has shared a video in which she opens up about having a crush on Angelina Jolie and admiring Ellen DeGeneres as one of the greatest modern lesbians. She says that she is very happy that there are so many queer icons for lesbian girls to admire, because she had no such icons when she grew up and started realizing her queerness. “Angelina Jolie came out as bisexual. That was a great one, I was so stoked,” said Ruby calling Angelina the most beautiful person alive. Later in the video, Rose says: “I wouldn’t want to stand her and say that [LGBT+] kids being born now or being born five, 10 years ago, are not going to encounter a struggle.” She adds: “I don’t think that [discrimination] is going to be erased entirely in the next five years, 10 years or 20 years. I think we’re on the right path and I think it’s amazing and I feel blessed because I haven’t been through what the people before me went through, and I know the people after me will say the same thing”.
