Doug Spearman Hosts Equality Awards Gala

This past weekend, Doug Spearman (Chance from Noah's Arc) hosted the Equality California Equality Awards Gala at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Las Angelos. The gala which is a fund raiser for Equality California served as a means to recognize some of those individuals that have been fighting for equality for the LGBT community. As Spearman took the microphone to begin the evening he talked about having his right to marry stripped away by Prop 8. He stated, "Yup, it sucked. But that's why were here tonight.

I am excited to see Spearman continue his vow to be an out and visible force for the gay community. If you remember, Spearman was the first individual from the original cast of Noah's Arc to come out as gay. I know we assume that they all play on our team but most of them have not admitted to it. Thus far, the only out individuals are Spearman, Darryl Stephens (and he was basically forced out when Out magazine listed him in their Out 100 year end special) and Wilson Cruz. Keep up the great work Doug Spearman.
