Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer – we’ll fight to the death for LGBT rights: VIDEO
Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer have said they would “fight alongside our gay friends” to ensure the rights of LGBT people.
Hawn and Schumer made their comments while promoting their new comedy Snatched.
“We’re both people who will stand up to the death for our gay friends and gay people and what’s going on in Chechnya and the fear of the what will happen in the coming years. We’ll be there to fight alongside our gay friends,” Schumer told PrideSource.
“Being an ally for LGBT people and an ally for all people, transgender or whatever – to me, that’s a human story. I feel there are injustices in the world that I’ll stand up for, and I think that it’s important to realize that the world is filled with these kinds of issues.”
“Love is something in the heart and in the mind,” she added, “so why would you chastise anyone for that? And this is something that I feel very strongly about.”
Hawn also discussed her advocacy work during the 1980s HIV/AIDS crisis, saying “it was a very scary time, and I would go visit guys and I’d get in bed with them just to be there with them.”
