Wanda Sykes Comes Out!!!


We love you Wanda!!! Have I told you that I'm a The New Adventures of Old Christine fan? I'd love to see more of Wanda in it.

Yes, Wanda came out yesterday at a Marriage Equality rally in Las Vegas.

Associated Press reports:

"You know, I don't really talk about my sexual orientation. I didn't feel like I had to. I was just living my life, not necessarily in the closet, but I was living my life," Sykes told a crowd at a gay rights rally in Las Vegas on Saturday.

"Everybody that knows me personally they know I'm gay. But that's the way people should be able to live their lives," she said.

Sykes, who is known for her feisty and blunt style, said the passage of California's Proposition 8 made her feel like she was "attacked."

"Now, I gotta get in their face," she said. "I'm proud to be a woman. I'm proud to be a black woman, and I'm proud to be gay."

We're lovin' it!

For myself, I'm long past taking the more passive, protest-based, approach to this issue. I want the LDS Church's tax-exempt status lifted. Then I want laws put in place to forcibly annul marriages performed in Mormon temples.

Then, and only then, will the people on each side of this issue be in a position to debate on a level playing field.

Absolutely. Do you know how we can go about getting their tax status revoked?

Between the nasty Catholic priest forbidding Obama voters communion and the pastor kicking out some woman for an Obama sticker on her car, and the combined LDS/Catholic attack on gay people, we have GOT to do something.
