Kathy Griffin, Wanda Sykes, Lance Bass and Tim Gunn talk to Larry King about Anti-Gay Violence and Bullying (video)

Larry King Live title cardImage via WikipediaThis was a really great discussion on Larry King Live, despite Larry's sometimes cluelessness. Kathy talks about "Trickle Down Homophobia", where anti-gay sentiments, laws like Don't Ask, Don't Tell, anti-gay voter initiatives, the lack of commitment from our leaders to move forward on LGBT rights and anti-gay religious leaders help to create a sense that it's okay to hate LGBT people. These societal values are passed down through our culture to the younger generation.

October is not just LGBT History Month, but it's also National Bullying Prevention Month. CNN's Anderson Cooper hosts a special presentation this Friday night at 10:00 pm called Bullying: No Escape. 

Enough is enough!
