The Cast of 'The Normal Heart' on Bringing Gay Rights to the Big Screen

Matt Bomer, Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons and Taylor Kitsch share why they wanted to be part of Ryan Murphy's drama  that took 30 years to make. 

"One of my big hopes is that people whoi did not experience it directly will A have an understanding of what people went through at that time, but even more importantly, that fact that gay mens health crisis and ACT Up really catalyzed the gay rights movement," says Bomer. "We really stand on the shoulders of these people for the rights we have today."
