MAN OF ACTION

WATCH: Jackie Chan Comes Out …

Let us finish! Jackie Chan has come out as an ally to the LGBT community.

The action film superstar has teamed up with GLAAD for a new “Coming Out for Equality” PSA campaign helmed by  Brett Ratner, as part of the Rush Hour director’s effort to show the world he’s not a homophobe.

“It’s not enough to talk about those fighting for freedom, for equality, until you are one of those fighting,” says Chan.

Other celebs kicking the closet open as allies include Seinfeld‘s Jason Alexander, Third Rock from the Sun‘s Kristen Johnston, and NCIS‘s Pauley Perrette.

    “‘It’s not enough to talk about those fighting for freedom, for equality, until you are one of those fighting,'” Awesome quote! Hopefully others celebrities will come to embrace this statement as well.

    I am really impressed that Jackie Chan would come out in support of GLBTQ liberation. He works in the Hollywood community, and works with the Queer community, so he knows what it is all about. So it is a great thing for him to do this. He could have kept his mouth shut and just kept on doing what he normally does. He didn’t have to risk anything. It is a wonderful thing when any of them step up to the plate and say it. Let’s give them their props.
