Comedian Wanda Sykes revealed her sexual orientation at a Prop. 8 rally in Las Vegas in November 2008, telling the crowd, "You know, I don't really talk about my sexual orientation. I didn't feel like I had to. I was just living my life, not necessarily in the closet, but I was living my life. Everybody that knows me personally they know I'm gay. But that's the way people should be able to live their lives. I'm proud to be a woman. I'm proud to be a black woman, and I'm proud to be gay." —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Bryan Bedder/Getty Images)
