Lucille Ball Supported Gay Rights In 1980

August 7, 2011

As America celebrates Lucille Ball’s 100th birthday this weekend I thought a quick reminder of how progressive and forward thinking she was might be in order.

From a 1980 People magazine interview.

How do you feel about gay rights?

It’s perfectly all right with me. Some of the most gifted people I’ve ever met or read about are homosexual. How can you knock it?

    She is right…..gay people are very gifted, not all but if you take a look next to almost every celebrity you’ll see a gay person behind them. People think she was gay too so maybe Annie is right with her questioning her sexuality every day.
