This is a thrill and an honor and an awesome night. You guys have been so good to me. I appreciate you, I get you, I love you, and I'll keep making you laugh as long as you'll let me! Thank you!

It is such an honor to be here, and to be honored by the Board of GLAAD. To have you say thanks in this way just means the world to me. We need to be in this for the long haul. Just because we achieved civil rights in the sixties for African Americans, it doesn't mean racism is gone. Because we achieved rights for women in the seventies, it doesn't mean sexism is gone. But we can stay in this fight because we know how it's is going to end. This is going to end with full equality for LGBT people in our churches and in society. I have no doubt of it.

At this moment in history, when marriage equality is virtually inevitable and maybe even imminent, when we've welcomed new LGBT civil rights legislation in Iowa, Colorado, Washington D.C., New Hampshire and soon New York, how can it be that LGBT people – after years of slow but promising momentum – have careened backwards in terms of representation in mainstream popular entertainment media?
