Sandra Bernhard, comedian, singer, actress and author, has recorded a video for the Trailblazer Project which aims to have LGBT entertainers come out and be role models for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth.
In the video, Bernhard — who has been open about her bisexual identity for a number of years — says that LGBTs have gradually been able to come together and support each other and also reach out to the wider community and communicate who they are. This is something Bernhard says no one should ever be afraid to do, and that there is no reason for young LGBTs to feel ashamed about who they are.
Watch the video below:
The Trailblazer campaign was started by actor and activist James Duke Mason, perhaps known to readers as Belinda Carlisle’s son, as a way of encouraging people in the public eye to live their lives authentically as role models for young LGBTs. You can see more videos from this project here.
