[1] Jumana Farouky, "Acceptance, One Reel at a Time", Time, 10 October 2005, "Almodóvar was not always so outspoken. Spain's legacy of repression was so strong that even though the rest of the world embraced him as a gay iconoclast, he was reluctant to take up the role in his own country. He only recently started discussing his sexuality in the Spanish press, and still keeps his private life private. “He has admitted he is gay and that is all we have ever got out of him," says Arnaldo Gancedo, president of Spain’s Confederation of Gays, Lesbians and Transsexuals. “He has never supported us, or any gay movements."
