At last night’s Point Foundation award ceremony, Farrow broke his silence and announced that he is, indeed, part of the LGBT community. Which part? That’s information for another day, I suppose.
Farrow was introduced and presented with the group’s Courage Award by fellow out journalist Thomas Roberts.
“Being a part of the LGBT community – which recognized that reporting I was doing early on and elevated it, and has been such a stalwart source of support through the sexual assault reporting I did involving survivors who felt equally invisible – that has been an incredible source of strength for me,” Farrow said in the speech.
“LGBT people are some of the bravest and most potent change agents and leaders I have encountered, and the most forceful defenders of the vulnerable and voiceless, because they know what it’s like to be there.”
Watch his whole speech below.
