I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

ANTHONY BOURDAIN FOR HRCs AMERICANS FOR MARRIAGE EQUALITY

Chef Anthony Bourdain is putting his support behind the Human Right Campaign's Americans for Marriage Equality project.

The Emmy award winning cook makes a case for same-sex marriage in a one-minute video (see below).

'A common thread of the people I admire – whoever they are, wherever they are – are people who are proud and do things with love, and feel a sense of responsibility to others,'  Bourdain says.
'What sensible person could be against that,' he continues.

His CNN show, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, has won a Peabody and Emmy.

'We are incredibly grateful to Anthony for his commitment to equality and for speaking out in favor of marriage rights for loving gay and lesbian couples nationwide,' Charles Joughin, HRC spokesperson, said in a statement.

The Americans for Marriage Equality initiative is public engagement campaign featuring prominent Americans who support committed gay and lesbian couples getting married.

Since 2012, politicians, actors, activists, and celebrities have recorded videos for HRC, the largest LGBTI civil rights organization in the US.
