Actress Marcia Gay Harden’s advocacy for LGTBQ community hits close to home…
During a recent “Drag Isn’t Dangerous” telethon, Harden called anti-drag policies “fear-based.”
What’s happening right now is wrong.
What drives me is my children are all queer. My eldest child is non-binary. My son is gay. My youngest is fluid. And you know, they are my kids and they teach me every day.
It’s spreading that kind of fear and hatred among other people.
I believe this country will fight that.”
Harden shares Hudson, 19, Julitta, 19, and Eulala, 24, with her ex-husband, Thaddaeus Scheel.
Harden also advocated for the LGBTQ+ community in an Instagram post.
Gay is here to stay. Drag is here to stay.
Donate what you can, and join us in spreading the love.”
In 2018 Harden let her son, Hudson give her an on-camera makeover for his YouTube channel.
