I want to encourage many people of all faiths to come forward and stand with me for LGBT Equality. Even if you don't believe in Jesus the way I do, he did teach love -- not just tolerance, but acceptance. I'm lucky I had parents who adopted me at birth, conservative Southern Baptists who said, 'You will love everyone the same'…Mostly I would like to thank GLAAD for this amazing, amazing honor. This is the biggest honor I have ever received.
