Andrew Garfield’s sexuality is, in a word, confusing. The entertainer has taken on several LGBTQ roles previously, from portraying a transsexual woman in Arcade Fire’s ‘We Exist’ music video to playing Prior Walter in the AIDS period drama Angels in America. He was also a staunch LGBTQ supporter who even dedicated his 2018 Tony Award to the community and cried out about the need for more LGBTQ portrayal in superhuman films like The Amazing Spider-Man.

As far as I know, I’m not a gay man, Andrew added. Maybe I’ll have a revival later in life, which I’m sure will be great and I’ll get to explore that part of the nursery, however at the moment I’m segregated in my own area, which is fear too. The backlash from the community was swift, with some blaming Andrew Garfield for distorting the LGBTQ experience and others calling his statement a more blatant example of queerbaiting.

Because we need a world where, regardless of your sexual orientation, your color, or your heritage, everyone gets a kick out of it. The two separate discussions need to happen at the same time.
