GRAND MARSHAL: Chelsea Handler & Chuy Bravo

Long-time supporter of equality, famed late-night talk show host of the E! Entertainment series, Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler boasts the consistently highest-rated program on E! We as a community are so fortunate to have this fresh, popular and talented artist, comedian and author of two best-sellers bring an appropriate integration of diverse humor to an ever-growing audience. When this queen of comedy was asked about the substantial cash donation she made towards defeating Prop 8, she was quoted in a January 2009 The Advocate article declaring, “If you don’t believe in gay marriage, don’t get married to a gay person! You don’t go back on civil rights.” From her stardom on Girls Behaving Badly to her hugely popular MSN online web series In The Motherhood, her charming spirit and quick-witted style brings an aura of light and approachable humor to the table in confronting difficult issues. Her first book, My Horizonital Life: A Collection of One Night Stands, was followed up with Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea, which debuted at #1 on the NY Times Best Seller list with her authentic and hilarious commentary, Chelsea, along with her sidekick, Chuy Bravo, helps the world see past human differences and joins people together in laughter. Her continued support and eager embrace is of benefit not just to the LGBT family, but to a world of humanitarian values.

Thank you, Chelsea Handler, for your vision, strength and good humor moves us deeply all while making the world laugh through your thoughtful actions and selfless devotion.

Community GRAND MARSHAL: Out West

Out West OUT West is a coalition of organizations that are representative of the communities they serve, working toward common goals of equal rights for LGBTQI people, through mobilizing their community at the grassroots level. One of the most important things any member of our community can do to support the rights and equality of our movement, is to show up. Face to face, with a united voice, the barriers that can potentially separate any human being are quickly dissolved through the familiarity of a shared desire for improved humanity.

Every member of this coalition is a tribute to the dedication and revitalized energy that will allow us to achieve the social acceptance and full equality that every human being deserves.
