Jane Lynch, who plays sharp-tongued
coach Sue Sylvester on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, says
Cybill Shepherd loves her lesbian daughters.
In a cover story for gay glossy The
Advocate, Lynch talks about tying the knot, her new daughters
and hosting the upcoming Emmy Awards. And coming out gay.
The 51-year-old actress has said that
nobody cares about the sexual orientation of character actors such as
herself, but in expanding her comment she added that she cared.
“That's something that I hope will be
helpful to people who are living in environments where gay people
don't exist or in environments that are hostile toward homosexuals.
It's good for people to know that you can actually overcome the
adversity and find places and people like you. They're out there.”
When asked whether her The L Word
love interest Cybill Shepherd discussed her lesbian daughters –
Ariel and Clementine – on the set, she answered: “Oh, yeah. She
marched in the [gay pride] parades before it was fashionable. And
she gave me an award at the Orange County gay and lesbian center
about 2 years ago, so she's been out there. Clementine's got a great
mom who's going to support her and whoever she loves.”
