Gay Fray: Suze Orman, Chely Wright, Renee Stubbs, Reichen, Ina Fried take on politicians, Girl Scout boycott, more

Good, bad or whatever … the famous have a lot to say about LGBT issues.

Chely Wright:

THIS is what happens when leaders like RICK SANTORUM declares that GAY=SIN. EricJames Borges, 19, killed himself

Renee Stubbs:

I think that Margaret [Court] has her beliefs and I don’t preach against them … but I don’t go out publicly and say something about it…. Everybody on tour is going to go about their business, whether you are gay or straight, that’s the most important thing … but could it be harder for them because they are conflicted or feel bigotry? I’d say so.

Suze Orman:

”It is no secret that I am gay. So, it is very difficult for me to look at any Republican nominee and go, ”Oh, that’s who I want in office.” Now I understand that President Obama isn’t necessarily for marriage and things, but I do believe I have more of a chance –.

”My social issue affects my financial issue. And the reason it affects my financial issue is because, if I die, KT (my partner) is going to lose 50% of what I have because we can’t be married….

”Out of all of [the Republican candidates], if there was going to be one, I would rather see it be Mitt than any of them.”

Buck Angel:

Girl Scouts was actually a really big part of me growing up. They really helped me learn lots of things of respect, friends, how to get along with people, and most importantly, how to sell those Girl Scout Cookies…. So, buy as many cookies as you can…

Ina Fried:

I support even those with whom I disagree. That said, there is only one proper response to this. Eat More Thin Mints!

Reichen Lehmkuhl:

The anti-Christian Pope nominated a homophobic bigot Timothy Dolan to be a Cardinal. The Catholic Church is now officially a world disgrace…. How can a Pope who represents a religion that follows Jesus be such a horrible, hateful, divisive, evil human being? It’s an embarrassment…. The Pope just launched a large-scale organized public attack on a group of minorities (gays) on Jan 9. He’s trying to be Hitler now.

Molly Thomas (one of two lesbian Miss USA California contestants):

Well, there was 270 girls, we had about 7 dressing rooms … starts in swimwear. I mean, I wasn’t complaining, I had a little bit of a “kid in a candy store” syndrome. But I was good all weekend.

Pat Buchanan:

Look, for a long time period of time, the hard left — militant gay rights groups, militant — they call themselves civil rights groups, but I’m not sure they’re concerned about civil rights, people of color, Van Jones, these folks, and other have been out to get Pat Buchanan off TV and deny him speeches, get his column cancelled. This has been done for years and years and years and it’s the usual suspects doing the same thing [with MSNBC] again.


So I was just informed I’m not allowed to say the word “tranny” anymore.

Carson Kressley:

You know you’re gay when you’ve spent the afternoon organising your transferware

Neil Patrick Harris:

Dooods! It worked! I won a People’s Choice Award! As did the SHOW! Thanks so so much for voting, and for just being generally rad.
