Gay Activist Wanda Sykes Speaks OUT

By Charlotte Robinson, June 08, 2011
Recently Wanda Sykes explained her position that
"it's harder to be gay than black". We know she’s
totally right. No one is trying to stop black people
from being black but in this country LGBT equality
exists only in a handful of states. She also spoke
about the plus & minuses of coming out. Sykes said,
"The best thing about coming is absolutely nothing
to hide. I mean, I am what I am & this is it. So now,
you know, you thought I had a big mouth before,
now it's just crazy. I'm like over the top, you know.
There's nothing that I can't say. The worst thing,
I guess, is just dealing with it, you know, like with
family & it's not necessarily the worst thing but, man,
it's like every day I get invited to some gay event...
good Lord, if I go show up at all these gay events,
I'm not going to make any money. I'm going to be
a broke gay. I'm going to be the brokest lesbian out
there." It's hard being Wanda but we love her...:)

I'm not talking about the history of black people, of African Americans. I'm talking about at this point right now... I don't know of organizations and groups like Focus on the Family and such anti-gay organizations who are putting up so much money – millions and millions of dollars – into stopping me from, you know, being black or telling me I can't exercise my blackness. There's no equality. There's no equality for the LGBT community.
