Australian actress and comedienne Magda Szubanksi (most famously known for her role as Sharon in Kath and Kim) used Valentine’s Day to support gay marriage and to reveal that she is gay.
My words will come nowhere near doing her beautiful and insightful words justice so I will not try to sum up what she said, instead you can watch this for yourself.
I cannot wait for the day where a celebrity talking about their sexuality is no longer news. The reason why I can’t wait for this day is because that will mean that we are finally at a place where every person will be free to be themselves. People will not be living in fear or having to hide a part of who they are. Everyone’s human rights will be respected – we will all be seen as equal regardless of sex, race, sexual orientation, and religious beliefs.
In the meantime, I applaud all who fight to achieve this and all who share their very personal stories with us.
Magda you are an amazing, eloquent and talented woman! I, for one, can’t wait to see how you will entertain us next!
