"[The LGBT community] empowered me, and in turn, when I finally had a platform, and a power, and a voice - no longer just a face, but a voice - to get across the points and the messages that were important to me, I brought you along with me. Because you embraced me and now I embrace you in front of millions to show how beautiful you are, how absolutely amazing you are, how giving you are. And I will continue to do that as long as I have a platform. I will continue to get the message out about gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people."

-- Tyra Banks accepting the Excellence in Media 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.
