Trevor Donovan on working with Great American Family network after Candace Cameron Bure controversy

Trevor Donovan portrayed a gay high schooler on 90210 and has a history of being an LGBTQ ally.

But the Dancing With the Stars semifinalist has a deal to star in projects for the Great American Family network, the same network creative director Candace Cameron Bure said intends to “keep traditional marriage at the core.”

Here’s what he had to say to Variety about it:

“I feel people should be and believe what they want, as long as they are kind and accepting of others. For those of you who have followed me since 90210, you know my heart and character. No matter who you love, no matter what your race or religion is, you matter. Through mutual respect and acceptance, coexistence is possible. Based on the few months I have known Candace, I have found her to be kind, and passionate about her faith.”

“It has always been my goal to create films that bring people together without being overtly political or religious, and I will continue to do so,” added Donovan. “And sometimes, in future rom-coms, I’ll play the naive country boy who finds love in the big city or saves his family’s farm. Stay tuned!”

5 Remarks

  1. Sorry Trevor. No can watch.

  2. I am not even remotely interested in Great American Family, but to be fair, I’m not interested in Hallmark either. I’m not their audience, and that’s fine.

    But I found this statement to be rather crass and calculated bullshit. How does being “kind and accepting of others” have anything whatsoever to do with reducing the definition of family to a very straight, homogenized pseudo-Fifties version of life where gays, non-Christians, and “urban” ethnicities don’t exist? Even the damn name of the network begs to be associated with MAGA and it’s anti-gay, racist, antisemitic violence and ugliness.

    Again, not the audience for Hallmark and its bigoted clones, but when I read somebody saying things like “mutual respect and acceptance”, what I hear is “why can’t you support my bigotry when you claim to accept everyone”?

  3. There comes a time when morals and character come into play—Despite the paycheck—Talk to The Big Fat Orange One’s former surgeon general Jerome Adams—He is finding it hard to get a job—-This choice by Trevor may come back and bite him—I don’t care what is in your heart—It’s the choice you made—People are paying attention—-

  4. Not surprised. he has a squeaky clean image..

  5. Is is straight or gay in real life ?
