"Twenty years ago when I proudly accepted the first GLAAD Media Award...it was a very small crowd. There are more photographers here tonight than there were people then.... And now, we look up in 2009, and [the LGBT community] is popular. The majority of the people in the nation agree with us. Our job now is to summon these people to stand up and say so out loud. To tell them to join us. To march the lavender line with us down Fifth Avenue, and to remind them, when they do join us, they're going to meet a lot of nice people."

-- Phil Donahue accepting a Special Recognition Award at the 20th Annual GLAAD Media Awards.

If you are in California on April 18, you ought to go to GLAAD's LA awards ceremony honoring Kathy Griffin, Bishop Gene Robinson and The L Word.
