Cheyenne Jackson, original star of Xanadu, All Shook Up and "30 Rock," whose latest album "Blue Skies" was just released.

There have been so many moments where I've been overwhelmingly proud of my LGTB community, I would be hard pressed to name one, so I'd have to say yesterday [June 26]. I'm in San Francisco singing Tony in West Side Story with the Symphony, and I'm also a Grand Marshall in the Pride Parade (gay, much?). With the major decisions yesterday – watching the people celebrating and crying from joy in the Castro and the pride in their faces. What a wonderful time to be alive.
