COMEDIENNE AND ACTRESS JANEANE GAROFALO TALKS TO OUT IMPACT ABOUT HER GAY FANBASE AND THE ADVANCES MADE IN GAY RIGHTS IN THE PAST DECADE
April 23, 2008 (New York, NY)–Prior to her sold-out stand-up performance in New York’s Greenwich Village, comedienne/actress/activist Janeane Garofalo sat down with Bambi Weavil and Shannon Smith of Out Impact, the online gay magazine, for a candid and in-depth interview.
Garofalo, never one not to speak her mind, discussed what she’s been up to, why she thinks she appeals to gays and hate crime legislation. The article, which can be read at http://www.outimpact.com/activism/janeane-garafalo-her-gay-fan-base-advancement-in-gay-rights-and-activism/ , provides insight that Garofalo’s fans won’t want to miss:
Her involvement with the hit TV series 24 and how she learned about their controversial ties to the Bush administration’s torture policy
The strong support she receives from the gay community and her theory for their support, as well as her opinion on how far the gay community has progressed with hate crime legislation since Matthew Shepard’s brutal murder almost 10 years ago
Her fight against apathy in America, the controversy surrounding transgendered Thomas Beatie who has received worldwide attention for being pregnant and legally male, and who she considers the biggest bullies of all time and much more.
