NOTES

His website's address is www.anthonyrapp.com

"Anthony Rapp wants to win a Tony award. He knows snagging Broadway's highest honor could do wonders for his career, but he has another, more political reason for wanting to hear his name called when the awards are given out this year. 'Think of the visibility", he says excitedly, picturing the ceremony in his head. 'Millions of people watching me lean over and kiss the man I'm seeing--on the lips. That's a great image that I'd want to leave people with.'" --From "Star '96" by Peter Galvin in The Advocate, April 30, 1996

"I just want to keep working. I want to be respected and sought after. I want to be in a position where my name will help get something produced." --Rapp quoted in "How the Show Goes On" by Peter Galvin in Interview, June 1996

"I think I'm primarily homosexual--certainly politically, and I guess socially. But, I don't consider myself 100% gay--it's a scale. The word queer is all-encompassing: I feel like "gay" invalidates, in a way, the girlfriends that I have had as an avoidance of accepting my "true" self--which I don't think that was the case. I think I've been genuinely in love or in lust with girls and guys--they both were and are true." --Rapp quoted on his offical website (www.anthonyrapp.com)

"No matter how he labels himself, Rapp's career is thriving. 'Being queer certainly doesn't seem to have cost me anything in theatre in New York, and I've done films since I've come out", he says. 'Frankly, if people aren't going to cast me because I'm queer, then I don't want to work with them.'" --From "No People Like Show People" by Christine Champagne, Metrosource, Fall 1996
