Bryan Lienesch89 - Not only is the entire cast just sensational, there is a hidden brilliance to them: some of them are gay and some of them are not. And with the whole cast side by side, without knowing better, it's impossible to tell. And, really, isn't that as powerful as anything else 'The Normal Heart' is trying to say?
