More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
The N's Stars say, "Be an Ally & a Friend!"
Here's sneak preview of GLAAD's new series of "Be an Ally & a Friend" PSAs that will officially roll out in early 2009. This one features some of your favorite stars from The N: Degrassi's Lauren Collins and Adamo Rugggiero and South of Nowhere's Gabrielle Christian and Maeve Quinlan.
This brand new spot will premiere during the one-hour series finale of South of Nowhere (airing tonight at 8 PM) and go into rotation on The N network.
The 20-second spot is part of GLAAD’s ongoing “Be an Ally & a Friend” campaign. The PSA is one of 22 new spots which will appear on national cable networks and local affiliates throughout 2009.
These PSAs encourage people to be allies to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and to help combat discrimination, directing viewers to resources at GLAAD.org.
Past participants have included T.R. Knight, Martina Navratilova, Lance Bass, Rebecca Romijn and Sara Ramirez, with the campaign airing nationally on multiple cable networks.
Be sure to check out the series finale of South of Nowhere tonight at 8 PM and share the all-new PSA with your friends!
