Had a great time with @conradricamora presenting our friend and @howtogetawaywithmurder creator @petenowalk with the Point Leadership Award at tonight's Point Honors gala with @thepointfoundation - @thepointfoundation is an amazing organization that helps empower LGBTQ students through academic scholarship funding, mentorship, leadership programs and community service training. I was absolutely blown away by the stories shared by the Point scholars and mentors tonight. Thank you.
I'm very proud of Pete and grateful that he has given me the opportunity to play an authentic character. A character that is openly gay. A character that is not the punch line of a joke. Hearing the response from each of you about how Connor and his relationship with Oliver resonates so strongly with you, and in some cases has helped some of you begin conversations with family or loved ones about your own sexuality or gender expression, has been a deeply rewarding experience. An experience that is all thanks to Pete's commitment to portraying LGBTQ characters honestly and without shame. Im honored to have been able to present this award tonight to @petenowalk on behalf of such an amazing organization. Congrats, Pete.
Help support @thepointfoundation and help provide resources for LGBTQ students. Thanks for having me.
