Sofia Vergara Stands Up For Gay Rights!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspirationSofia VergaraLGBT



Not only is she absolutely beautiful AND HIGHlarious, she's also a proponent of gay rights?!

Sofia Vergara is the perfect woman! LOLz!

The Modern Family actress recently opened up to The Advocate about her gay fanbase, her support of them, and much more!

Here are some HIGHlights:

Thanks to its positive representation of a gay couple, Modern Family has earned an extended family of gay fans. Are you aware of your gay following, Sofía?

Yes, and I love it. I’ve always had plenty of gay fans, even back in Colombia, probably because I’m voluptuous and a little over the top. Gay men always tell me how fabulous I am. I think they want to be Gloria.

What about lesbian admirers?

Oh, there aren’t that many, are there? That’s flattering. All my fans must be very respectful, because I’ve never had a guy or a girl come up and grab my ass.

What does that support mean to you?

It’s great. But it’s a reality that more and more people are coming out, so I think it’s important to return their support.

You filmed a PSA for GLAAD’s “Be an Ally and a Friend” campaign.

Yes, because we should all be tolerant and respectful of people’s sexuality. We have to appreciate each other’s differences and accept people who have the courage to accept themselves. That’s beautiful.

Why did you shoot your PSA in Spanish?

Well, imagine how hard it is for Latin guys and Latin kids to be gay. Most of us are raised very Catholic, and the macho figure is very strong in our culture, so it’s still more taboo and a million times more dramatic to come out. Many gay friends have told me how hard it was for them to be open in the Latin community. Nothing’s going to change from one day to the other, so it’s a matter of doing things little by little. That’s why I love the gay couple in Modern Family. People always tell me, “We’ve never seen a normal, loving gay couple before!” They think gay people are just running around naked, partying in nightclubs. So it’s good for older people, especially those who aren’t exposed to a lot of gays like we are in the big cities, to see gay people portrayed in a beautiful way.

Wow! She really is beautiful inside AND out!

And she really hits the nail on the head when she says, "We have to appreciate each other’s differences and accept people who have the courage to accept themselves."

So insightful, so powerful, and so true!

We think a lot of people could stand to learn a thing or two from you, Sofia!

Thanks for your support! It's MUCH appreciated!

    i have heard from this skank a few times and I am already sick of her. My advice keep your mouth shut you landed a nice gig. If you try to become a break-out start that will not happen for you. You are to dum for that to happed. Now go away and study your script and keep your mouth shut.

    Re: pollopicu – jealousy burns baby! The woman is exotic, voluptuous, hot and shines sexy all over her… not very women can have all that at the same time… and I don't even like Colombians but man, if I was a lesbian, I'd fantasize about her constantly hahaha
