Kenny Ortega on Ryan Evans' Sexuality + Queer Aesthetic In His Movies



Kenny Ortega gave an interview to Variety, where he discussed the iconic character of Ryan Evans (High School Musical), as well as Hocus Pocus, Hair and Newsies.

He talks about an incident when a police officer planted drugs in his hotel room, whilst starring in Hair.

He also talks about his coming out at 21.

Doesn't think that Disney would've been ready for an openly gay character at the time, so he instead made choices that he thought the audience would grab.
