  4. Well Rowan, for one...did you listen to her speech. For the life of me, I don't know why gay people feel compelled to denigrate people and organizations that are on our side.

  5. I like Kim Catrell and appreciate her support of LGBT people and the fight for equality, but I don't think one is denigrating her by asking what has she done that makes her particularly worthy of the GLAAD award. Maybe in GLAAD's early days actors who played gay or gay-friendly characters with respect and dignity were blazing trails and doing something noteworth. But in this day and age, I have to agree with Rowan. Her speach at the awards show certainly didn't inform us what she's done to deserve an award. And I think it is rather self-serving of GLAAD to give an award to someone who spends half of their speech time praising GLAAD.
