Nick Jonas talks gays and acceptance

Pop star Nick Jonas returns to Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and talks to the Advocate about becoming a man, his guest spot on NBC’s Smash, and how his Christian upbringing influenced him on gay issues.

Says the little Jonai:

My upbringing was faith-based, but we believed you should love all others as you want to be loved, because everyone should be treated equally. That’s helped me have an understanding of people on different journeys and in different walks of life. At the end of the day, we’re all the same, because we all want to be loved. As long as love as the key, we’re in good shape.

My thoughts on gay marriage are that everyone has the right to love and be loved, and that’s the position I take.
Gay boybanders and pop idols rarely come out at the height of their popularity. If a Jonas Brother came out, what impact might it have on your career?

The amazing thing about our fans is that they’re incredibly supportive about everything that we do, but I have to separate us from the equation because the three of us aren’t gay. If someone in our position came out, I’d hope that support would carry over and that their fans would love them just the same.
--> Nick, they'd love them thrice over! Especially if said gay was is Joe. That's so obvious that it causes blue balls.
