!! OMG, ‘I am in shock and ashamed’: Jesse Tyler Ferguson speaks out against prejudice !!

“As an actor I have learned that I have to develop a thick skin but as a HUMAN I am having a harder time. The amount of vitriol I have received in the past few days over my stance on marriage equality could kill an adult horse! The majority of my fans have been amazing & supportive. But I am in shock and ashamed of many of my “fans” who are standing firm in their stance that I am “less than” them because of my sexual orientation. To those who feel this way: I gladly show you the door and wish you well on your journey.”

“It is a macho sport — there’s a lot of machismo. I was afraid I could be discriminated against because there is a lot of discrimination against the gay community. This fight is important for me because I am now liberated. I made history [but] I want to be respected. [I’m] Single — no boyfriend. I don’t want one. I want a world championship. It’s my dream, the most important thing in my life. The title belt is my new boyfriend. When I finish boxing, I want people to remember me: ‘Orlando Cruz was gay — and he was a good boxer and a good guy.'”

!! OMG, changing minds: Conservative Christian lives a year as a gay man !!

“I went from being a very narrow-minded, hyperconservative Christian to an ally of the gay community,” says Timothy Kurek, the conservative Christian who went undercover as a gay man for his new book The Cross in the Closet. Kurek told his family and friends in Nashville that he was gay, even though he’s straight, in order to better understand the experience of the LGBT community in the face of religious propaganda. He says he cried after being called a faggot: “I had to be held back from attacking the person that did it. I never felt so violated and minimized in my entire life, because of that one word.” The book’s ultimate goal, says its author, is to drive home the point to conservative Christians that, “there’s a much better way. It’s God’s job to judge, it’s the spirit’s job to convict, and it’s my job to love.”
