Look everyone, a “Gay Non-binary” for us to hate!

Name: Brandon Kyle Goodman

Age: 34

Hometown: New York City

Now lives: In a one-bedroom apartment in Hollywood with his husband, Matthew Raymond-Goodman, and their dog, Korey.

Claim to fame: Mr. Goodman is an actor and writer best known for “Big Mouth,” an adult animated sitcom on Netflix about preteens surviving puberty. He is the voice of Walter, a bisexual lovebug.

Mr. Goodman is also a Black and queer activist who hosts a weekly podcast, “Black Folx,” which features conversations about diverse Black voices. “Being a nonbinary gay Black person in Hollywood is an uphill battle” he said. “As a storyteller, I, too, want the chance to play with all the colors in the crayon box of humanity instead of being sidelined as a trope.

Big break: After graduating from the Tisch School of Arts at New York University in 2009, Mr. Goodman began writing a pilot about three queer friends in New York City in search of love called “Sweet Boys,” filled with poignant observations about modern romance drawn from his own journey.

His agent submitted it to “Big Mouth.” “They loved it and thought that it fit with their world,” he said. “I remember one of the creators of the show, Jennifer Flackett, saying the characters in my pilot reminded them of the ‘Big Mouth’ kids as grown-ups.”

Latest project: Mr. Goodman just finished playing Walter again, this time on “Human Resources,” a spinoff of “Big Mouth” set in a workplace. His co-stars include Randall Park, Keke Palmer and Aidy Bryant. “It’s a dream to be part of the ‘Big Mouth’ universe as a writer, and then to be trusted to join its legendary roster of comedic icons as a voice on the show is nothing short of an honor,” he said. “I’m still pinching myself.”

Next thing: Mr. Goodman is working on his first book, a collection of essays on Black queerness to be published next fall by Legacy Lit Books, a division of Hachette Books focused on BIPOC authors. “My hope is that, if you’re white, cis and het, you’ll have a really candid look into what it is to be Black and queer,” he said. “And if you’re Black and queer, or you’re living in the intersections, you’ll have language that articulates your experience because that’s what I missed growing up — language that articulated my experience.”

Going Live: Every week, Mr. Goodman goes live on Instagram to answer questions about queer sex. “I know that to the outside this all could look raunchy, but to me, it’s activism because sex positivity and talking about how much shame there is around sex is super-important, and I wanted to create a safe space to do that,” he said.

So... if you're not male or female... how can you be gay? Or is this one of those people that goes by queer?

Also, I was going to say the article was committing literal violence by misgendering, but it looks like this guy goes by both they and he.

Is Matthew Raymond-Goodman black or white? Reserving judgment until then.

by Anonymousreply 3November 26, 2021 5:57 PM

In WHAT way is this guy neither a man nor a woman?

The non-binary emperor has no clothes. It’s time to stop paying deference to these pretentious, idiotic fruitcakes.

Enbies are mostly pure bullshit when it comes to identity.

But the article did not alternate the pronouns. It just chose to use he throughout and that not right. Do better.

They’s what you olds would call androgynous. You could never tell. They is neither man nor woman, keeps you guessing.

99% of the people who call themselves non-binary are not actually non-binary. And even the other 1% are questionable.

by Anonymousreply 8November 26, 2021 6:02 PM

No one is non-binary. NO ONE.

It's quite literally the opposite of an uphill battle. Announcing those identifiers will get you cast and your show sold.

"Non-binary" is where you go when all other showbiz options have run out.

This guy isn't any mystery at all - though he wishes I guess.

Androgynous is somebody like the model Andrej Pejic - before he transed himself into Andrea.

Black queerness. Non binary.

Just shut up. You’re a garden variety Negro fag.

R26 Of course! You didn't think he'd be into any ethnicity other than white, did you?

"Queer voices of color aren't being heard!" says a man writing for one television show and acting in another, who has a large social media following across multiple platforms, does a weekly podcast, and has had several articles in different magazines about being a non-binary POC in Hollywood.

Am I missing something - this is a man with a beard. How is he non-binary exactly?

R34 We really don't know who is Lil Nas X with. The dancer was a PR relationship. I have a feeling he has someone who wants to stay private, probably from music industry. Don't know the race, could be black or white.

Lyle Nassex is dating a genderfluid Inuit sex worker named Cube.
