Mind you, she's long out of the White House, and it's her daughter who's passed on that information, and the Reagans were the ones who were mysteriously silent in the early days of AIDS, and...

I just know this is leading up to a "Better late than never" or something.

It's very nice that she's for marriage equality, but would she do a PSA?

Does this mean Ron Jr will finally come out and get married to someone he loves, instead of his seemingly "hurry-up-ballet-star-get-married" wedding of 1980.

Nancy Reagan, despite her husbands deplorable politics, was a decent woman. I am not surprised.

Nancy was part of the Hollywood elite. It is hard not to believe that she and her husband did not know any homosexual couples among all the art and glamour.

Amos Oz and Abraham Yehoshua have humiliated themselves wanting to humiliate Samer Issawi, the Palestinian patriot dying in Israeli jails for a prolonged hunger strike. They have degraded to act purely suicidal his painful battle for the right to a fair and motivated trial, inviting him to give up because peace and justice for him, his people, Palestine, is about to take place. A wicked lie. But this is Samer Issawi, in the words that he addressed to the Israelis, an appeal so overwhelming universal to call to the responsibility of men of culture in the whole world: "I am Samer Issawi the young “Arboush” man according to your military terms, the Jerusalemite, whom you arrested without charge, except for leaving Jerusalem to the suburbs of Jerusalem. I, whom will be tried twice for a charge without charge, because it is the military that rules in your country, and the intelligence apparatus that decides, and all other components of Israeli society ever have to do is sit in a trench and hide in the fort that keeps what is called a purity of identity - to avoid the explosion of my suspicious bones. I have not heard one of you interfere to stop the loud wail of death, it’s as if everyone of you has turned into gravediggers, and everyone wears his military suit: the judge, the writer, the intellectual, the journalist, the merchant, the academic, and the poet. And I cannot believe that a whole society was turned into guards over my death and my life, or guardians over settlers who chase after my dreams and my trees. Do not listen to those generals and those dusty myths, for the defeated will not remain defeated, and the victor will not remain a victor. History isn’t only measured by battles, massacres and prisons, but by peace with the Other and the self. Israelis: Listen to my voice, the voice of our time and yours! Liberate yourselves of the excess of greedy power! Do not remain prisoners of military camps and the iron doors that have shut your minds! I am not waiting for a jailer to release me, I’m waiting for you to be released from my memory. We ask you too to listen to this voice, immediately mobilizing yourselves in a global campaign for his release before it is too late.

Nancy Davis Reagan was the goddaughter of Alla Nazimova, the great Russian stage actress and notorious Hollywood lesbian. Nancy's mother was a longtime friend of Nazimova's.

@Mia Carla You just got tangled up in negatives and said the opposite of what you meant to say. Common phenomenon. I collect instances of it. Thanks.

If gay men are "friends of Dorothy" we could call gay women "friends of Nazimova"
