Identity, stereotypes and the “importance” of the gay best friend

So, I discovered this wonderful TED talk from Michael Maksymowki, which totally struck a chord with me. He eloquently talks about how people are reduced to stereotypes and categorised and how that becomes the norm. “Oh you,know my friend Simon, he’s gay” you get my drift..

Anyway I wanted to share so please check it out.
