My Condolences

I haven’t posted anything on Friday’s shootings yet because it’s been so incredibly difficult to comprehend. I can’t even watch the news right now because it completely breaks my heart. Whether you are a parent or not, as adults and as human beings, it is our duty to protect children from harm because they cannot protect themselves. When we’ve reached a point in our society where we can’t even do that, there is a moment when things start to feel a little hopeless.  If an elementary school is not sacred then what is?  It brings up something different for all us…we shed tears, we mourn the loss, we worry for our loved ones, we become angry, we demand change. Then, as we are taught to do, we pick ourselves up and move forward…not forgetting what happened but hopefully taking moments to be nicer, to hug someone a little longer, and to enjoy the days we are lucky enough to have here on earth. In the end, no matter what tragedies we may endure, I remain hopeful that we will always persevere. Much love and many blessings to all of you. 

If you would like to donate to the families of the victims to help pay for funeral costs and grief counseling, here is a link.

I’ve tried to stay out of this whole Chick-fil-A controversy just because I’m tired and I haven’t really felt like having a bunch of conservatives freak out and tell me Chick-fil-A should be able to exercise their first amendment rights.  Nor do I have the patience to be told that I’m going to hell, which by the way is entirely possible because I once cheated on an 8th grade math test and I stole a piece of gum when I was five.  A sin is a sin, right?  I’m sure it says that somewhere in the Bible and I know how much people like to quote it. I’m not going to sit here and tell you to boycott anything. It’s a freakin’ chicken sandwich…if you want to eat one (and they are delicious) by all means knock yourself out.  And most of the people who have been eating there up until now have been doing so because they genuinely like the food, not because they have had a political or social agenda. However, for those of you that are posting how proud you are to be going to Chick-fil-A today for the sole purpose of supporting this company for “holding strong to their beliefs” and “standing up for the family,” you’re doing a lot more than eating a chicken sandwich. This is way beyond first amendment rights.  Whether you choose to acknowledge it or not, you’re telling people like me, who’ve done nothing but work tirelessly to be a positive contributor to this world, that I am less than.  That I am not worthy of love, acceptance, equal rights…that how I am as a human being is wrong simply because of my sexuality.  What’s even more disappointing is that many of you going there today truly believe that. So I’m not going to sit here and pretend that you’re going to read this and suddenly become more loving and accepting towards people who are different from you.  You’re way too busy hanging out at Chick-fil-A today with people who are exactly like you. I can only hope that when our world finally realizes that you are wrong, you will find comfort in those chicken nuggets alone.

Chelsea Lately

So there's some good news and bad news. The good news is that I'm the newest full time writer on Chelsea Lately! It's been a super awesome experience so far and working with Chelsea Handler is a blast. The bad news is that I've had to cancel 11 of my standup shows all across the U.S. this spring. But I will be taking some road shows when I can. In the meantime, you can catch me from time to time appearing on Chelsea Lately. Tune in weeknights at 11:00 on E!

It Gets Better

Growing up gay is not easy but it does get better. You don't have to go through it alone. There are millions of people who love you just the way you are. If you are thinking about hurting yourself, please talk to someone. Here is a message from myself and my fellow comedian friend, Bridget McManus.
