Kathy Griffin Is “Straight Ally of the Year”

hollywoodnews.com: When it has been time to step up and speak out in favor of same-sex marriage, against Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, and about the bullying that has led to too many gay teens to kill themselves, Kathy Griffin has been there with clarity, conviction, and with the facts.

She just gets better all the time.

This two-time Emmy winner for My Life on the D-List shows up at rallies and benefits for marriage equality and against Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and has used her experiences on her popular Bravo show.

She also knows when to get serious. Kathy did not crack a joke during the entire hour of a panel King hosted on teen bullying that also included Wanda Sykes, Nate Berkus, Tim Gunn, Chely Wright and Lance Bass.

Kathy announced that she would be donating her entire salary from her concert at the Gibson Ampitheatre in Universal City earlier this month to The Trevor Project.

Kathy has also released a video where she makes the claim that “trickle down homophobia” from political and religious leaders is to blame for making gays feel inferior and for the bullying that has led to the suicides.
