GLAAD CONDEMNS NIURKA MARCOS' IGNORANT ANTI-GAY COMMENTS
Los Angeles, CA, Tuesday, July 10, 2007 – The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) today condemned novela actress Niurka Marcos' use of defamatory anti-gay comments during interviews aired last week on Univision, Televisa, Telefutura, Telemundo and Azteca América.
In interviews, Marcos called Larios’ sexuality into question simply because he’s playing a gay character. "I believe the times I lived with him he wasn't gay," Marcos said of Larios on Televisa's "La Oreja," a celebrity gossip show, on July 4. "I don't know what he did with his body, his soul, his feelings. At that time when I left him, he was normal."
