“Oprah Winfrey. She does a lot of good for people. Her show covers LGBT topics in a sensitive way. Whenever she’s asked if she’s gay, she denies it — but also uses that opportunity to explain that being gay is OK. She doesn’t bash gay people to make people believe she’s straight.”

“Dan Savage. I admire his efforts to reduce or end bullying. He tells the truth. If more people would follow his example, we’d have more thinking people — and a more understanding society.”

“Ellen DeGeneres. Her show is awesome. She’s a great representative of the community — because she has confidence and does her own thing without worrying about the opinions of others. I think she’s a good role model.”

“President Obama. He’s all about change, including better lives for LGBT people. I respect his attempts to end “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” It’s very unfair to prevent people from serving their country because of their sexuality.”
