Kerry Washington Gives Rousing Speech at GLAAD Awards

Kerry Washington Brings the Fire in Her GLAAD Speech

Midway through her speech at the GLAAD Awards, Kerry Washington had people on their feet while she accepted the Vanguard Award, given to a celebrity who has been an ally to the LGBT community. "We have been pitted against each other and made to feel like there are limited seats at the table for those of us who fall into the category of other," said Washington. "As others, we are taught that to be successful, we must reject those other others, or we will never belong."

Washington's speech is a smart, thoughtful, and forceful argument for why we need more diverse representations in the media, until there are "no longer firsts and exceptions and rare and unique." Cheers to that.
