Talking to the Huffington post whilst promoting her latest film, The Fifth Wave, actress Chloë Grace Moretz opened up about subject of family and LGBT equality.
I feel like we put so many labels on so many things in our society. And my big issue is not just the fact that people are against LGBT [but] it’s the fact that we’d have to come out and say who we’re interested in. There should never even be a question…It doesn’t matter! It’s not an issue! Why are we even living in a society where we have to answer those questions? That’s a question that shouldn’t be asked!”
She also explained how the treatment of LGBT people has confused her from a young age.
Definitely in the beginning it was a confusion on my part as to why anyone even cared. That was kind of my big thing as a kid, i was kind of like, ‘well why do they even care who they find is cute. The way my family has always been is no matter what it is, whether you’re gay, you don’t like a sport, whatever it is, we stick up for one another. So I immediately started filling that role from a really young age because I was on a platform to where people would listen to me and they would hear what I was saying.
So I could defend them on an even larger scale, by promoting it in magazines and interviews and speaking about it on social media and just trying to promote equality.”
This is not the first time the actress has talked about her relationship with her two gay brothers and her strong pro LGBT beliefs.
