Journalist Ronan Farrow may have been outed back in 2013, but at last night’s Point Foundation, he openly came out in a speech. The son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen received the Courage Award from fellow journalist Thomas Roberts for his support of queer students. During his speech he just said that he is part of the community.
“Being a part of the LGBT community, which recognized that reporting I was doing early on and elevated it, and has been such a stalwart source of support through the sexual assault reporting I did involving survivors who felt equally invisible – that has been an incredible source of strength for me,” Farrow said. “LGBT people are some of the bravest and most potent change agents and leaders I have encountered, and the most forceful defenders of the vulnerable and voiceless, because they know what it’s like to be there.”
