Driving a cab is not really a nurturing type of relationship. You take people and they tip you, they may not tip you, you don't know their names, they don't care about you, you don't care about them.
Each time you do a film you gain a lot of experience and build a visual resume where people get to know who you are.
I love working with a lot of different films and a lot of different people.
I'm an Air force Brat and I've lived all over the world and this country and there were people in my community who were gay - nurses, hairdressers, designers - people who just had a different way about themselves.
My people were homesteading in Colorado before Emancipation.
Today, many people are engaging in same sex relationships and saying they are not gay.
And as I reinvent myself and I'm constantly curious about everything, I can't wait to see what's around the corner in newfound art and entertainment and exploration.
I grew up in a family where we weren't allowed to talk about beauty or to put any emphasis on physical appearance.
My family was very, very receptive to all; all races, religions.
That's what he was saying, the civil rights movement - judge me for my character, not how black my skin is, not how yellow my skin is, how short I am, how tall or fat or thin; It's by my character.
Well, thank you and that's for them, but for me, I want to look back at a body of work where when you do the research and you explore the psyche of a character, where she's been, where she is and where she's going.
I love science fiction.
It's always fun to put on bell bottoms and have your butt hanging out and hip huggers.
I love the hip-hop nation.
I don't believe that I should just do A-movies, I just do the work as an artist.
