Can you tell that I had a great time at the GLAAD awards? Thank you @glaad for inviting me to present with @carlychaikin, thank you @helloross for the hug, thank you @brooklyntailors for proving that my wife was right when she told me I should buy a green suit, and most of all thank you @rosie@therealdebramessing and Billy Porter, gifted artist and deserved winner of the Vito Russo award, for the uplifting and inspirational words charging us to be better humans and stronger allies. Thank you for letting me be part of such a special evening.
A year ago I got to meet the talented team behind this short film when we workshopped the script during a table read. After only ten days of shooting in London, @ghettofilmschool premiered Genesis at the @paleycenter. Congratulations to Romeo Ortiz, Kyra Peters and the rest of the @ghettofilmschool team on an incredible accomplishment. You demonstrated the talent, work ethic and teamwork that this business requires. @ghettofilmschool you are making good on your mission to develop the next great generation of American storytellers. Thank you for including me in the creative process and I can't wait to see the work of your alums in the years to come.
Celebrating Ryan Murphy with @sagaftra and reminiscing with all-time greatest theater costars Jessica Lange & @mssarahcatharinepaulson. Ryan Murphy is leading the charge against Hollywood's diversity problem with a commitment to fill 50% of all director (and now crew!) positions with women and minority candidates. I'm excited to witness the momentum behind this long-overdue initiative and can't wait to support all the great work that will come out of increased access to and collaboration between all artists in this industry.
