While speaking to TMZ, the actor said: “There are a lot of shows on TV right now […] showing queer stuff. But they just don’t sexualise bigger gay men.

“Gay bigger people are invisible. I really respect Ryan Murphy. I think he’s a leader in diversity and inclusion riders.

“But he doesn’t have any sexualised, bigger guys in any of his programming.

“Nobody does right now. I’d be working if they did.

“I’ve never had a problem finding anybody to hook up with! All my characters have to beg people. I don’t understand!”

He then went on to say he had a #bigboysummer but he’s ready for #bigandtallfall.

Reclaiming my childhood spent wearing a shirt in the pool growing up in Florida. Not giving a F*CK what people think feels so good. It's #bigboysummer and soaking up every last minute until #bigandtallfall. #BellyOutchallenge
