The Shorty Interview with GLAAD

Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?

Definitely. Twitter is now an important vehicle through which we call people to hold TV shows, movies and media outlets like CNN, FOX News and even local newspapers accountable for incorrect or offensive LGBT content. Together, we show Americans that offensive material about LGBT people is not tolerated- your tweets are helping advance equality!
