Comedian and gay idol Kathy Griffin is set to headline a rally on Thursday in D.C. to speak out against “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
On her Twitter account, Griffin tweeted that those who support allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the U.S. military should come to the rally, which starts at noon on Freedom Plaza, to “let ur voice b heard 4 EQUALITY.” She said the rally would make up an important part of an episode on her reality show, “My Life on the D-List.”
In a video interview Saturday with RadarOnline.com, Griffin confirmed she was taking part in the rally on behalf of the Human Rights Campaign. During the organization’s annual fundraising dinner in Los Angeles, HRC honored Griffin with an Ally for Equality Award.
“We’re going to do a really exciting protest on Thursday, March 18 on behalf of overturning Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” Griffin told the news web site.
