Chely Wright gives inspiration through appearance on Oprah

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: I’ve watched Chely Wright’s appearance on The Oprah Show several times because it is so rich and so powerful.

With her honesty and hard-earned strong sense of self, Chely could end up becoming one of the most effective activists in the LGBT movement. She’s articulate, emotionally intelligent, and might be able to reach a lot of people out there who are not being reached.

I think she is most magnificent and a gift to us all.

She talked to Oprah about growing up and realizing she was a lesbian: “I was told in church that there were building blocks of sin and evildoing, and these words were strung together to scare me—drunkard, thief, adulterer, homosexual. I thought, ‘That’s what I am,’” she says. “I prayed every day for God to change me. And it was: ‘Dear God, please don’t let me be gay. I promise to be a good person.’ I said that prayer every day, multiple times a day.”
