"When I first started in my career,
I thought I'm here to entertain people,
"But as I've got older,
my career has gone in a different direction...
Now I get a lot of letters from young people who are either in the position of being shunned by their families or are fearful of coming out.
"I thought I could help those people and help everyone understand.

Is it nature or is it nurture?
"If you're a parent with a gay child, watch it."
