Don spoke to NPR about his new responsibilities as a gay pubic figure and role model.
The new role is one that Lemon seems to have embraced. He said, "I think it's important for me to have a presence there and for me to actually walk in and own it and for all those journalists who are there, to say to them, like, not only that it's okay, but thank you for your support."Don has been on scene, holding different LGBT discussions and pointing issues that affect the LGBT community in his interviews. He is also embracing his newly found role and encouraging others to do the same. I'm so proud of him and I hope his story motivates more men of color to come out.
