Video: A good 'Big Brother' opens inexperienced minds

by Jeremy Hooper

These comments, from a "Big Brother" houseguest who hasn't had many personal dealings with LGBT people, could've gone a cringeworthy way. As it played out, however, it shows us (a) the continued need to share our stories and (b) the ease and pace with which previously unengaged minds can and will open when given the chance:

The other houseguest was perfectly honest: just a month or so ago, she had both fear and discomfort towards the gay community. One out and proud person changed her mind. The newly and happily enlightened houseguest then shared her story with millions of Americans, surely changing a few more minds in the process.

This is how it works and this is why it matters. We share our stories and we win.
