Gay British actor Andrew Scott has insisted Pride is 'not a gay film'
The Sherlock actor stars in the 2014 British drama film, based on the true story of how gay activists helped during the 1980s miners strike. It has already become one of the most loved releases of the year.
But Scott insists there is more to the film than just having gay characters and a gay storyline.
'It’s not a gay film, it’s about humanity,' he told the Huffington Post.
'Everybody within the cast and crew responded to that feeling at the read through very passionately. They felt a huge ownership over that, whether they were men, women, gay or straight.'
Referring to himself, he added: 'Our personal stories haven’t got anything to do with what we want for society in general.
'I think it doesn’t matter if you’re gay playing a straight part or a straight man playing gay, as long as you’re good at it. That’s the only thing. Nobody objects if you do your job well.'
Pride is out now in UK cinemas.
