Sharon Gless Speaks OUT (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, August 06, 2019
This week I talked with Emmy & Golden Globe winning actress Sharon Gless about her reunion with Tyne Daly at the Richmond Ermet Aid Foundation’s Silver Anniversary Gala event “Help Is On The Way 25 Celebrating Broadway” that takes place on Sunday August 18th with a concert & gala that benefits Meals on Wheels of San Francisco & Raphael House at the Herbst Theatre 401 Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco, CA. Gless is reuniting with her “Cagney & Lacey” partner Tyne Daly in a reunion performance not to be missed. Also scheduled to appear will be Eileen Bourgade, Carole Cook, Franc D’ambrosio, Sam Harris, Kimberley Locke, Constantine Maroulis, Jai Rodriguez, Del Shores, Lisa Vroman, Bruce Vilanch, Paula West & the cast of the National Touring Company of “Hamilton”. Carole Cook a protégé of Lucille Ball who has starred on stage & screen for over 70 years will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at Help Is On the Way 25. For over twenty years the Richmond Ermet Aid Foundation has raised millions of dollars by producing Broadway quality entertainment events & galas to advance HIV treatments & support AIDS services until there is a cure. I talked to Sharon about this tremendous organization & as a fierce ally her spin on our LGBTQ issues. Sharon Gless has entertained TV viewers worldwide for over the last five decades. However it was her breakout role on the CBS hit TV series Cagney & Lacey that won our hearts as over 30 million viewers each week watched Gless as NYPD detective Christine Cagney in the first hour-long drama to feature two females in the leading roles that ran for six Emmy-winning seasons from 1982 until 1988. Then another generation of viewers fell in love with Sharon’s portrayal of Debbie Novotny the outspoken devoted mom of a gay son & confidant & loyal supporter to his gay friends for all five seasons of Showtime’s daring smash series Queer As Folk. We also talked to Gless about the possibility of a Queer As Folk reunion. "Help Is On The Way 25" is Northern California's largest annual benefit concert benefiting HIV/AIDS & hunger programs. It's an elegant evening of wonderful music, delicious food & beverage tastings & most of all fun. LISTEN
