    Beautiful couple, and beautiful speeches from both of them. Matt’s was somewhat more personal, and it was clear he was moved when talking about his cast mates. He has such a lovely heart, and really is an amazing inspiration.

    What an inspiring couple. I’m amazed how articulate they both are. Matt is an amazing orator. He can mix humor and seriousness so seamlessly. Respects.

    These two set the standard now, role models for all not just gay role models.

  7. Dana says:

    That was wonderful. The both of them are such educated, funny, loving people. I wish them all the best.

    Matt always seems to speak from the heart. What a genuine caring man. In a perfect world there would be no need for words like prejudice, intolerance and hate. But until we find that peace and understanding, I say thank you to people like Simon and Matt for having the courage to stand tall and fight for the rights of those who are still discriminated against.

    Thank you so much for putting this video in here. I loved it. These two guys are just wonderful. I am full of admiration for their social engagements (not only for GLSEN).
    At any rate they deserved this honour and they expressed their thanks for it in a very charming manner.
    Simon is evidently a very pleasant person and attractive as well. And Matt…he definitely is one of Nature’s masterpieces.
    I love him.

    I wonder if Matt and Simon fully understand how much they’ve advanced the cause for gay acceptance just by being who they are? I think that the Universe sent them to earth to be normal, loving, intelligent, humanistic beings who just happen to be gay, in order to show that this can be normal.
