The Hollywood Reporter: The Bury Your Gays trope went mainstream in the past year. How is Handmaid’s working to ensure that it doesn’t perpetrate that?
The show looks at all of the characters as 100 percent multidimensional characters. We don’t have anyone on our show that is the “gay character.” Ofglen is so much more than that. Moira is so much more than that. We’re not trying to kill anyone; we’re trying to show the realities of what can happen to anyone that is marginalized in this society. Anyone who is seen as other, anyone who has any fact or part of them that does not go with the regime. I would challenge anyone and encourage anyone who is of that line of thinking to look at the story as much more than that.
