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.
Wanda Sykes to Host "Vote With Wanda Sykes" LGBT Election Specials on Logo
Out comedian Wanda Sykes will be hosting two one-hour specials for Logo titled NewNowNext Vote With Wanda Sykes that will focus on topics of concern for LGBT voters in the run-up to the Presidential election. The specials will feature a roundtable format with political pundits from both sides covering a wide variety of subjects including marriage equality, Supreme Court appointments, the economy and healthcare regulations. The first special will air on Logo on Monday, September 10 at 10 pm with the second airing on election-eve, Monday, November 5.
Said Sykes, “These specials will be thought provoking, exciting and the perfect forum to discuss important issues facing our community. Plus, it is Logo so maybe I’ll get to dress in drag!”
Sykes was honored by GLAAD in 2010 with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award for her work as an openly lesbian advocate who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for the LGBT community in the media. Watch her acceptance speech below.
