Video: Debby Boone speaks about the “tough transition” to accepting and supporting gay people
My great pals Renee Sotile & Mary Jo Godges of Traipsing Thru Films did a terrific interview with Debby Boone at the GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday night.
We all remember Debby’s monster hit You Light Up My Life and lately, you can’t avoid her “lifestyle lift” commercials in television!
Debby is a well-known Christian and it’s been tough for Christians, including some of my own family members, to reconcile their faith with being accepting of gay people.
But Debby, whose father Pat Boone is very publicly anti-gay, has made that transition and speaks about it here.
I love what she says.
“I am one of the people that has made the transition from an old way of thinking to a new one. … I have really good friends and family members that have changed my mind.”
