Actress Anne Hathaway (The Princess Diaries, The Devil Wears Prada, Ocean's 8) was recognized at the 22nd annual Human Rights Campaign for being a voice of equality for the LGBTQ community.

Giving her speech, Hathaway held back tears while denouncing white, straight and cisgender privilege. In part she said:

That myth is that gayness orbits around straightness, transgender orbits around cisgender, and that all races orbit around whiteness.
I appreciate this community because together we are not going to just question this myth, we are going to destroy it.
Let's tear this world apart and build a better one.



HRC President Chad Griffin said of Hathaway:

From speaking out against discriminatory legislation targeting the LGBTQ community to her leadership on workplace equality for women, Anne is making a real difference in the lives of countless people around the globe.

Twitter couldn't agree more.









In 2008, Anne told a crowd of HRC members and supporters:

I don't consider myself just an ally to the LGBT community, I consider myself your family. And so, I'm doing what we should all do with our families — I'm loving you, I support you, I completely accept you as you are, as I hope you do me, and if anyone ever tries to hurt you, I'm going to give them hell.

After we've watched a movie, it can be difficult to imagine the film as a project that took months or years to finally culminate into the product we see at the theater or on our television.

But it was built and hacked together, piece by piece.
