    I do love NPH, and I found that opening to be very funny, but I also felt invisible as a woman and lesbian watching it. I know that he talked to some women in the audience, but it was pretty clear that up on stage, he was telling cis straight men that it was ok to watch theatre. I get that this is addressing the stereotype, because women and lesbians aren’t stereotyped as disliking theatre because it’s “girly,” but then again, he never addressed women or lesbians at all. Not even when he was listing off people who tend to go to theatre. So…where were we?

    I also get confused because I don’t really participate in the LGTB community, but sometimes it feels like gay(s) refers to both lesbians and gay men, and sometimes it feels like people try to make them distinctive. And so when NPH or someone talks about the gays but then only refers to traits/stereotypes of gay men, I’m not sure if I should say, “Gay includes more than that, you know…” or if that’s correct and they really are only meaning to talk about gay men.
