''Listen, next week is the gay pride march. And I know that I'm going to be there marching with all of you. And the most exciting thing tonight is that we're all here together. And you can sign up at a table here to get a ticket on a free bus to DC. So, you have no excuse. And if the buses are all filled up, there's tons of other ways to get there.... And there's really no excuse for you to go. I was thinking to myself, 'If everyone in this room were to go and bring 10 friends -- which I don't think is a lot to ask because you all have lots of friends -- just from this one night, there would be 10,000 more people marching....' I really believe in this cause, and as a woman in pop music, I think that this is really an important weekend, and it's not a fucking joke. So, get your asses to DC and wear something fabulous. And I'll see you guys there, I love you so much.''
