Sir Ian McKellen on the X-Men's appeal to Gays and Ellen Page's Coming Out

Sir Ian McKellen had a lot to say about the X-Men and how it appeals to certain groups. In an interview with Buzzfeed, he said:
“Marvel told me that the demographic for the readership of the comics is young blacks, young jews, and young gays. These are all young people who feel a little bit like mutants, so they sympathise with [the X-Men] and want them to thrive and do well. And all this has come to a happy conclusion hasn’t it, with Ellen Page coming out. That gladdened my heart so much.”
