Jane Lynch is a beloved gay icon, and I hope that you enjoy her youtube video message to you. It's less than 30 seconds long, and I hope you enjoy it.
Jane is probably best known for her portrayal of Sue Sylvester in the award winning Fox musical dramedy Glee.
Jane has won an Emmy Award, People’s Choice Award, a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actor’s Guild Award, and she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last year.
She was featured on the cover of Out Magazine’s Out 100 in 2012, where writer Shana Naomi Krochmal wrote about Jane’s long climb to the top of her profession.
Jane Lynch wasn’t exactly sitting around waiting for some guy to make her his muse. He found her anyway.
The actress–comedienne spent a decade with Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre and toured with Second City. She did commercials, bit film roles, and TV guest spots. “I spent many, many, many years saying yes -- to everything,” she says. One of those yeses led her to Christopher Guest, and his improv mockumentary films (Best in Show, A Mighty Wind) helped make her just-off-center character work cultishly desirable.
She held her own alongside Steve Carell (The 40-Year-Old Virgin), Will Ferrell (Talladega Nights), and the other brash boys of mainstream comedy. And then another twisted scribe in need of an unexpected muse, Ryan Murphy, cast her in 2008 as Sue Sylvester, the amoral cheerleading coach whose acerbic insults are the strychnine sucker punch to Glee’s saccharine.
Jane is never afraid to speak out about bigotry and injustice, and I applaud her commitment to LGBT rights. The world would be a better place if we had more people like Jane Lynch populating our planet.
I think it's only appropriate during LGBT Gay Pride month, to say thank you Jane!
