I think it is incredibly important to have queer artists in theater at all levels, but as we move to more commercial theatrical worlds, it is harder to hold on to your identity and be your true self. If we want to change the industry we need to make sure there are safe spaces where we can find our true selves in order to be sure of ourselves in less queer spaces.
