Bravo, Wanda Sykes!
The funnywoman and co-star of The New Adventures of Old Christine officially came out of the closet yesterday.
Sykes also announced she married her girlfriend on Oct. 25, just days before the passage of Proposition 8, which has banned gay marriage in California.
“You know, I don't really talk about my sexual orientation. I didn't feel like I had to. I was just living my life, not necessarily in the closet, but I was living my life," said Sykes, 44, while speaking at a Las Vegas rally for gay marriage.
“I got pissed off,” she continued. “They pissed me off. I said, 'You know what? Now I gotta get in your face.' And that’s what we all have to do now. They pissed off the wrong group of people. They have galvanized a community...Instead of having gay marriage in California, we’re going to get it across the country.”
