Vanessa Williams At HRC Dinner

Vanessa Williams spoke eloquently at the HRC gala dinner here in NYC on Sunday. Like most, I tend to take a dim view of giving straight people awards for not hating us, but it is what it is. And I adore Vanessa Williams, who here gives an interesting chronology of her journey from beauty pageants to pop stardom. She also talks about her gay friends whose relationships have outlasted both of her marriages.
