In a new interview with Honeymag.com, True Blood's Mehcad Brooks hesitates to call himself a sex symbol and comes out strongly for gay rights and marriage equality.
"I haven’t even gotten that far [about settling down]. But yeah, I want a wife, I want kids. The whole thing. But I’m also not even concerned with marrying somebody until it’s legal for everybody to get married. And what I mean by that is the whole Prop 8 thing. I find it really offensive. I just find it really problematic when you start throwing people’s rights away. Until we get our gay brothers and sisters back into a realm of consciousness that everyone else is in, it’s just not right. A woman who’s getting married—it’s probably going to be a gay man who made her dress, and a gay man who’s doing her hair and makeup, but he can’t get married. How messed up is that?"
Brooks adds that he has "a crush on Rachel Maddow’s mind."
