Voice for Equality: T.R. Knight
February 12, 2009
Best known for his role as Dr. George O'Malley on ABC's hit medical drama Grey's Anatomy, T.R. Knight began his acting career on the stage in his hometown of Minneapolis, MN. In the early 2000s, he began appearing in a handful of guest spots on programs ranging from Frasier to Law & Order.
In response to his views on marriage equality, Knight said, ""It shouldn't be any different from any other fundamental rights - freedom or religion, freedom of speech. That's not for some, that's for all. We're in a free society." October 14, 2008, the day after Equality California called for an emergency LGBT media briefing, Knight donated $50,000 to "No on 8" to fight the proposed California state Constitutional amendment to overturn marriage equality.
Nominated by Margaret Santiago.
