This morning, multi-award winning actress Sigourney Weaver was interviewed on CNN where she spoke about her role as Mary Griffith in the film Prayers for Bobby. She spoke about the emotional impact that the role had on her and why she recognizes the importance of PFLAG as a place where parents and families should turn for education and support. She also acknowledges the work of the Trevor Project for LGBT youth.
PFLAG National honored Sigourney in 2009 with our Straight for Equality in Entertainment Award. She has been a tremendous straight ally, and we could not be more proud of her.
