Terry Gilliam calls himself a ‘black lesbian in transition’


The 79-year-old, who directed Monty Python and the Holy Grail in 1975 and helped write 1979’s Life of Brian, was supposed to release a new movie, but told The Independent that he was bored of discussing the new project and redirected the conversation into defending the white manhood. The filmmaker said that after the Harvey Weinstein row people started to blame white cisgender men in every trouble of the world. “We’re living in a time where there’s always somebody responsible for your failures, and I don’t like this. I want people to take responsibility and not just constantly point a finger at somebody else, saying, ‘You’ve ruined my life,’” he said. If you thought that it could not get any worse, you were wrong. Gilliam went ion saying that ambitious people like Weinstein don’t take responsibility for what they do because they have power and they enjoy it. ““It’s been so simplified is what I don’t like. When I announce that I’m a black lesbian in transition, people take offence at that…,” he said, adding that in our word it’s better not to be a man and not to be white. Well, maybe we are simplifying it too much again, but Harvey Weinstein was hated because he behaved inappropriately. You can be black or white, cis or trans, gay or straight, or anywhere else in each of these spectrums, the point is in what you do and how you t6reat others, it’s actually simple.
