Comedian Lisa Lampanelli Donates $$$ To AIDS Cause For Every Anti-Gay Protestor At Her Show

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationPerezTV

Amazing.

Comedian Lisa Lampanelli vowed to donated $1,000 to GMHC for HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and care services for every anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church protestor that showed up at her Topeka, Kansas show.

44 protestors arrived to spew their ridiculous hate, allowing Lisa to donate a generous $44,000 to the charity.

Marjorie Hill, CEO of GMHC said:

"We are grateful for Lisa Lampanelli's kindness and courage to fight homophobia. She is holding up a mirror to bigotry and hatred, and reflecting back love and generosity."

Wow. What a wonderful way of turning hate into something positive. Great job, Lisa!!

    Nice of her but you're only interested because it's gay related.

    This is nothing short of brilliant.

    What a great thing for her to do. I've been waiting a couple days to find out how many protestors showed up. lol Seriously, great job, Ms. Lampanelli

    That's impressive!!

    I totally support her effort to put the crazies in their place and think that the donating of money in Westboro's name is brilliant. However, there were several children out there protesting and they are being brainwashed into thinking that their parents are right in thinking gay people and just about everyone else in the world not affiliated with their church is evil. She may have contributed to the confirmation of that idea for them by cursing at them and chanting "we take it in the rear". There may never be anything or anyone who will change the mind of these hate-mongers, but perhaps the children can be helped and shown the truth.

    Re: Falafala – Dude, are you kidding? These kids are already brainwashed no matter what anybody on the outside says. This certainly was not perpetuating it any further. If anything, if I was one of those kids and I had to sit outside with a giant sign and I saw all the 'horrible' gay people laughing and having fun, I'd be like, I wanna be with them, they're having a party lol



  11. 11

    Very awesome!

    Hey, Perez! Thank you so much for posting this. One correction: The WBC people said there were 48 protesters there, so even though we only counted 44, I have made it an even 50, and will be donating $50,000 to the Gay Men's Health Crisis. I will be presenting the check to the GMHC on Wednesday in NYC!!! Thanks again for posting!

    I loves me some Lisa. Props to her for donating the cash and essentially giving a big F you to those protestors. I'm embarrassed to live in the same state and area as those wackos.



  14. 14

    Love this! Love her! It's so sad how many children were protesting, though.



  15. 15

    Lisa, WE LOVE YOU!!!

    Re: Lampanelli – Thanx Lisa!!!!!!!!!

    Dear Ivybby,

    HIV AIDS is not gay related. Globally the highest number of newly infected groups are heterosexuals, particularly women. Way to go Lisa !



  18. 18

    Wow, I've never been a fan of Lisa Lampanelli. But she's won me over with that.

    LOVE HER for that, rock on Lisa!



  19. 19

    Now all she (Ms. Lampanelli) has to do is donate 1,000.00 a year. That way she can drag out WBC humiliation for 44 years.
    Revenge is BEST served cold.

    Re: Ivybby – DUH! Because he's gay! Damn. People forget what BLOGS are. They are articles that interest the authors! If Perez likes gay rights, he'll right about it because it's his blog and that's what he cares about. If he wants to write about Gaga, he will! If you people dislike it so much, stop coming back! Shiesse!

    Re: Lampanelli – you are cool LL. hope your tour takes you back through ny. always love your appearances on howard.



  22. 22

    religious people bash gays just to cover up their child fucking!! AND THANK YOU!! fucking freaks!!



  23. 23

    Yay! Good for her! Smart, generous move by the Queen of Mean. I hate the WBC more than I hate cancer.



  24. 24

    Re: Lampanelli – Awesome!!!



  25. 25

    That was an awesome thing to do. Love her! The westboro baptist church is whacked and they need to all kindly go away, if possible even die. :)

    Two days behind other gossip sites, you are the worst source for celebrity news.

    Re: djnv2009 – Yeah, you wish it was that way. You really do. If anybody's a freak, it's you for thinking like that. Just because something's happened a couple of times by a few sickos doesn't mean that everyone does that. Hey, homosexuality is partially attached to the gay community. So djnv2009, if you were gay, could I automatically assume that you were HIV positive?? You know, since you think everybody is one way because a few people are. Oh yeah, and one time I saw a gay man at the club I used to work at suck a guy off behind a vending machine. Would that mean that I can assume that you do the same?? DIDN'T THINK SO, ASSWIPE!!

    But anyways, although i'm politically conservative, I have to give props to Lisa for turning something that could have been very negative into a positive event. Those Westboro folks take anti-homosexuality to a whole new level, and it's quite sickening. And there's nothing political to it, they do it just to hate. And although I know plenty of folks who are against homosexual marriages, they don't hate gays- none of them do. And if anyone has heard otherwise, than that "gay-hater" isn't a Christian to begin with, because no Christian religion that I know if is down with that kind of thing. So once again, good job, Lisa. You have brought awareness to an area where it was much needed.

    i thought all the christians had ascended to heaven already i guess these ones left must be 44 of the damned …spreading hate is all part of the day in baptist church..



  29. 29

    i LOVE her for this.



  30. 30

    I LOVE her! What a genius idea!

    Re: PlayingTheAngel – "I know plenty of folks who are against homosexual marriages, they don't hate gays- none of them do." - Yeah! they just love those gays! Just don't want them to have any rights or make a big fuss about it. Try again, hon.

    That was insanely cool!

    Lisa Lampenelli is not only an activist, but she’s acting as a public relations hero. To speak out against some of her own fans to stand up for what she believes in proves not only her passion and proactivity for her beliefs, but also for the greater good of the country. This communications tactic is not only aggressive in its message, but leaves no question about the upstanding image and values of the comedian. Clearly her experience and worldly perspective prove as a foundation for her heart felt initiative. Speaking more to her character, is that she actually followed through with the $44,000 donation. Acting as an ally for the gay rights community, her actions and personality demonstrate not only great qualities for any human being, but a great public relations practitioner.
