GAY HISTORY – WATCH: Jane Fonda Speak Out For Gay Rights In 1979 Following The The White Night Riots [VIDEO]

In a resurfaced video from 1979 Jane Fonda was being interviewed following the White Night Riots in San Francisco, and the death of her friend Harvey Milk.

Fonda was interviewed by a TV reporter. Firing back the most brilliant and eloquent of thoughts after being asked if gay people were ‘using’ her organization, the Campaign for Economic Democracy.

Asked: ‘Do you feel that the gays in San Francisco, who are very powerful and very strong, need support? Are they still being discriminated against?’ Fonda emphatically replied: ‘Oh, absolutely. Culturally, psychologically, economically, politically – gays and lesbians are discriminated against. ‘They are a very powerful movement, especially in San Francisco, they don’t need me, but they like me, they like our organisation, the Campaign for Economic Democracy, because they know that working together we can be stronger than either entity is by itself.’

“I’ve lived a long time, 20 years of that time was in the south, and I have seen too many lives destroyed and distorted by homophobia. I pray with all my heart that I live to see the day when people can come out freely, safely and be accepted by every strata of society.” – Jane Fonda  introducing Lee Daniels, the only ever gay black nominee for the Best Director Oscar, and this years honoree at the Outfest Legacy Awards

Daniels’ acceptance speech was succinct and frank:

“My very deep gratitude to y’all, because you’ve been there for me even when the NAACP has not been,” he began. “I thank you, brothers and sisters in this room, from the bottom of my heart. It’s difficult being being a black gay man in Hollywood. Do they take you seriously? Do they call you “camp”? My own people called me camp. What the f*ck is camp? Camp is me, camp is you, camp is my work, and I’m proud of it.”

Daniels, directed Fonda in her ironic performance as Republican First Lady Nancy Reagan in The Butler.
