Terry Gilliam weighs in on BBC diversity debated: "I tell the world now I’m a black lesbian" https://t.co/9BP6sz7bhg— ET Canada (@ETCanada) July 4, 2018
He was responding to a question about comments made that said a show like “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” wouldn’t make it to air today because it lacks diversity.
“Of the six Monty Python members one was gay and one American. It made me cry: the idea that … no longer six white Oxbridge men can make a comedy show. Now we need one of this, one of that; everybody represented… this is bullshit. I no longer want to be a white male. I don’t want to be blamed for everything wrong in the world: I tell the world now I’m a black lesbian… My name is Loretta and I’m a BLT, a black lesbian in transition.”
