Paul Newman, movie star, philanthropist, liberal, and devoted family man died Friday at his home in Westport, Connecticut. He was 83.
Newman: “I’m a supporter of gay rights. And not a closet supporter either. From the time I was a kid, I have never been able to understand attacks upon the gay community. There are so many qualities that make up a human being… by the time I get through with all the things that I really admire about people, what they do with their private parts is probably so low on the list that it is irrelevant.”
