Comedian Wanda Sykes comes out of the closet

On Saturday, comedian Wanda Sykes shocked gay marriage supporters in Las Vegas by showing up and coming out of the closet as a lesbian. I know, duh. But, I’m really happy Sykes has added her name to the growing list of LGBT entertainers who are fighting for equal rights. Here’s a clip:

In a longer clip (that you can find on YouTube), Wanda prefaced these comments by saying her friends and family have always known she was gay and she always thought it was silly to have to discuss it publicly, but now that she sees the need for gay people to fight for rights, she can no longer keep quiet.

Bravo to Wanda and her partner, who were married in October – before legal gay marriage was repealed in California.
