Oprah (appearance)

In October 1994, I appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show with Chris Hannon, who I worked with in Boston to pass the Gay and Lesbian Student Rights Law.

Guests included:

  • Hannah (and her homophobic tormentors)
  • Jody, (who believed he could change his sexual orientation)
  • LGBT college students (who received death threats)
  • homeless teens from an LGBT shelter in Los Angeles
  • Anthony a gay teen who reunited with his father
  • and students from the Harvey Milk School 

The taping took place at Oprah’s Harpo Studio in Chicago and was broadcast nationally in conjunction with Coming Out Day.
