Brett Ratner directed and produced GLAAD's new PSA series, donating his time to raise support for LGBT people after he recanted from his antigay remarks of yesteryear. It's a fun and eclectic bunch of celebs, including Jackie Chan, Tamala Jones (Castle), Giada De Laurentiis (Food Network), DeRay Davis (21 Jump Street), Hudson Taylor, Jaime King (Hart of Dixie), Jason Alexander (Seinfeld), Kristen Johnston (The Exes), Sarah Shahi (The L Word), and Pauley Perrette (NCIS). Additional participants and videos will be released later this month. The PSAs were produced by Kali Londono.
"Our straight allies are essential participants on the road to full acceptance of the LGBT community," said GLAAD's Wilson Cruz. "From athletes to faith leaders to elected officials across the political spectrum, straight Americans are speaking out for equality at a rapid rate and we hope more across the nation will be inspired to take action in support of LGBT people."
According to the press release, "Comcast and NBCUniversal will serve as a leading media partner for the PSA campaign, contributing $1.5 million in national airtime on its Xfinity TV cable systems and bringing this important message to more than 20 million homes over the next year."
