I found this gem today. It is one of the most heartfelt videos I’ve seen concerning gay marriage. Jimmy Nguyen, host of ‘Speak Up With Jimmy’; founder of DiverseStory Project; digital media lawyer, speech expert, and motivational speaker wrote a little blob about one of his episodes. In this episode that I linked to above, Jimmy interviews a finalist Bradon McDonald from Project Runway.
Jimmy and Bradon discussed Brandon’s proposal to his long-time boyfriend, on an episode of Project Runway. It wasn’t until after Bradon won a project with Jesse Tyler Ferguson as a guest judge. Ferguson, who you may know from the ABC sitcom Modern Family as Mitchell Pritchett, is the founder of the Tie The Knot organization, which raises money for marriage equality. After winning this round, Brandon decided to propose to his boyfriend, Josh, of eighteen years on national television. They are now engaged, so the risk was worth it.
What I found interesting in the video is that Bradon was able to change a woman’s mind about same-sex marriage. Bradon received a letter confirming this.
We have the power to change our world by simply speaking up.
