A comment on "The Advocate interview " by John Bassey
She won many awards from LGBTQ organizations for her fundraising and attention she brings to equal rights for all LGBTQ Americans and people worldwide. During the GLAAD awards she sang What Makes a Man a Man. She continues to be an outspoken advocate for our right to marry and to have equal rights in all spheres of our lives. She has done this more than any other celebrity of her age or stature.
She is also all about survival, and she has said that many times. Besides her movies (I have seen Cabaret at least 200 times - no really - obsessed) and performances, she inspires me to keep going whatever challenges I face. If I have some difficulty to deal with, I think, "What does Liza do," and then I try to do the same thing to survive and thrive. Her latest message - Do what you want and do it well - is on my refrigerator.
I get so fed up with stupid articles like the one in the Advocate written by clueless people who have no idea what Liza has done for our rights, I could scream.
Why do her gay fans love Liza? Why do her str8 fans love her?
