Trevor Donovan (born Trevor Donovan Neubauer) plays newly “out” Teddy Montgomery on 90210 recently talked with EW.com about his character and is happy that as more gay teen characters appear onscreen, more real-life adolescents are realizing that theres nothign to fear or be ashamed of about their own sexuality.
“I think that’s why the bullying does happen, and the teasing,” he said. “People bully and tease about things they don’t understand, that they’re scared of. So this is enlightening people and bringing it into the mainstream… I think it’s important to educate people, and I’m proud to be part of it.”
Trevor also let slip that in 90210‘s big prom episode, which airs tomorrow night, May 9 that “Teddy ends up taking Marco,” to the prom and that “It’s become a very acceptable thing. So it’s actually a very positive episode.”
*Back2Stonewall.com previously has posted video’s of Donovan’s character Teddy Mongomery’s storyline only (not the whole episodes) about Teddy’s coming out and life lessons but I stopped due to time restraits. Now that I have time again I will pick up from where I left off and post the remainder of the episodes I missed and the Prom Scene on Tuesday May 10th.
