>> THANK YOU SO MUCH!

WOW!

I JUST HAVE TO THANK A COUPLE OF

PEOPLE.

THANK YOU, GLAAD, FOR GIVING ME

THIS HONOR.

IT REALLY, REALLY MEANS THE

WORLD TO ME.

[ APPLAUSE ]

I'D ALSO LIKE TO THANK MY GREAT

CAST.

THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME KISS ON

YOU AND TOUCH YOU.

[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]

I'M STANDING HERE AND I RECEIVE

SOMETHING LIKE THIS I REALLY

THINK ABOUT MY COUSINS AND MY

AUNTS, MY FAMILY MEMBERS WHO ARE

GAY, WHO ARE LESBIAN, WHO ARE

QUESTIONING, WHO RAISED ME AND

WHO TAUGHT ME TO BE WHO I AM AND

THE STRONG WOMAN YOU SEE

STANDING IN FRONT OF YOU TODAY.

[ CHEERING ]

I DO HAVE ONE VOTE, AND I'LL

TELL YOU ONE THING I'M NOT

VOTING FOR ONE PERSON WHO

DOESN'T RESPECT EVERYONE IN THIS

ROOM.
