Journalist Ronan Farrow thanked the LGBTQ community for being "an incredible source of strength" for him in an acceptance speech at the Point Foundation’s awards ceremony. The Point Foundation, a national scholarship organization for queer students, awarded farrow with the Courage Award for his in-depth reporting on #MeToo.
“Being a part of the LGBT community—which recognized that reporting I was doing early on and elevated it, and has been such a stalwart source of support through the sexual assault reporting I did involving survivors who felt equally invisible—that has been an incredible source of strength for me,” said Farrow in the speech. “LGBT people are some of the bravest and most potent change agents and leaders I have encountered, and the most forceful defenders of the vulnerable and voiceless, because they know what it’s like to be there.”
