Dame Julie Andrews: ‘I don’t think there’s been a time when I haven’t been [an LGBT ally]‘

Since her iconic films The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins, Victor/Victoria and Thoroughly Modern Millie have brought Julie Andrews legions of gay fans over the decades, it’s nice to know she loves us right back. Dame Andrews, 81, was asked by The Advocate when she first realized she was an LGBT ally. “That’s hard to answer, because, just always!” Andrews replied. “Theater, anyway, is such an open community and free. I don’t think there’s been a time when I haven’t been [an ally].”

“I have to say, though, in my hometown, in my community, I was very aware of bias and bigotry, and couldn’t understand it,” Andrews continued. “I was raised not to be that way and not to think that way, and it always seemed puzzling to me that the world wasn’t just embracing human beings. But it’s never been something that I stumbled on. It’s just always been innate, thanks I think to the professions that I am in. But also the way I was raised.”

2 Remarks

  1. I have always love Julie Andrews ever since I watched “The Sound of Music” for the first time with my grandma. There was always something about her that made her stand out from the rest as it seems. She’s got a heart of gold for sure.
