When asked by interviewer Alyona Minkovski if he opposed marriage equality, Reynolds answered: “No. I’m not a monster. I think it’s fantastic. It’s been legal in Canada for 10 years now. To me [the opposition] just seems crazy.”
He further stated that “we shouldn’t be in a state of awe and celebration for it”.
“[Gay marriage] seems very humane, it just seems very, like a given… We should be taking it for granted like regular marriage at this point.”
