... As hinted at elsewhere on this thread, and as has been stated before, any casting director or agency will tell you that it is almost literally, if not in fact outright ACTUALLY, illegal, to inquire about sexual preference in any kind of job interview type situation, including auditions.... just as it would be unacceptable to ask someone if they were a virgin before they could play someone who'd never had sex (that'd be another whole can of worms), or discriminate against someone who'd never had a child before allowing them to be considered to play a parent, or even to refuse to cast someone as a widow or widower unless they'd actually lost a spouse.
Racial and ethnic identity is one thing, and appropriate enough to consider in most cases – but once you start prying at all into a checklist of considerations involving one's private life, it's another kettle of fish, and entirely off limits.
