"I know my own truth. I'm in a great relationship with a woman. Maybe before it used to bother me. Then I was like, â€˜This is so stupid that this bothers me. Some of my best friends in the world are gay, and if this is bothering me, then that means I have an issue with that.â€™ Once I figured that out for myself, I thought, â€˜I don't care what anyone thinks about me.â€™ That's why I think I've become an ally for the gay and lesbian community. I just got [an Ally for Equality Award] the other day in Atlanta. I've very proud of my role in the community. So say what you will."
