John Waters, Susan Sarandon, Martin O'Malley Speak at Maryland Marriage Equality Fundraiser in NYC: VIDEO

Waters

Last night Marylanders for Marriage Equality held a star-studded fundraiser in Manhattan.

SarandonThe Baltimore Sun was on hand:

Thursday's soiree in Manhattan raised money only for the Maryland campaign — one of string of fundraisers being held beyond the state's borders. Gov. Martin O'Malley, who attended as a guest with his wife, Katie, helped to organize earlier events in Connecticut, San Francisco and New Hampshire.

"It has become a lot easier for people to come out," observed Sarandon, who said she feels families of gay children have been incredibly effective in changing minds in recent years. "Everyone knows someone who is gay," she said.

Other guests included Barbara Bush, daughter of former President George W. Bush; actor Ed Norton, a Maryland native; Baltimore filmmaker John Waters; and hip-hop producer Russell Simmons.

Derek McCoy, the executive director of the Maryland Marriage Alliance, took aim at the glitter associated with Thursday's event in New York. "Those folks are trying to celebritize this issue," McCoy said.

Susan Sarandon Says GLAAD 'Out of Control' for 'Tranny' Criticism

Rocky

Rocky Horror star Susan Sarandon tells the New York Daily News she feels GLAAD went overboard in criticizing Glee's use of the term "tranny" in its Rocky Horror tribute episode:

"When we caught up with Sarandon, she said the controversy puzzled her. 'What should they have said?' she asked, adding that she knew plenty of people who proudly called themselves 'trannies.' GLAAD, she said, was 'getting like PETA - way out of control.' (Not that Sarandon is invested in 'Glee' and its dramas. 'Now that my kids are gone,' she said, 'I don't watch TV at all.') GLAAD spokesman Richard Ferraro responded by reiterating his organization's objections. 'The word 'tra—y' has become an easy punch line in popular culture,' he wrote in an email, 'and many still don't realize that using the term is hurtful, dehumanizing and associated with violence.'"
