Leno and Wanda Sykes Determine Lesbian Sex Will Overturn Prop. 8

Recently out lesbian Wanda Sykes exercised “Day without a Gay” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Wednesday.

Sporting a t-shirt with a rainbow colored fist on it Sykes made a delayed entrance telling Leno she was calling in gay for work, the movement intended to protest Prop. 8 through illustrating LGBT people’s integral place in society.

“Thank you,” Sykes said to Leno. “You’ve always been so supportive.” To which a chuckling Leno claimed he made Sykes gay by hitting on her.

“We just want the same rights as everyone else,” Sykes said, adding that gay people aren’t looking for special rights.

The pair became very silly and off-color when Leno told her he never understood the argument that gay marriage undermines the sanctity of his marriage or of heterosexual marriage in general.

Sykes suggested that the only way her marriage could affect his is if she and her spouse went to his house and had sex on his living room floor, which caused a light to go off for Leno, who posed a solution to overturning Prop.8.

All you lesbians — “Go to straight guys houses and make love on the floor,” Leno said. They’ll overturn this amendment to the California Constitution, he joked.

Wanda Sykes Says She’s Proud To Be Gay

Wanda Sykes says she’s ‘proud to be gay’

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Comedian Wanda Sykes says the passage of a same-sex marriage ban in California has led to her be more outspoken about being gay.

“You know, I don’t really talk about my sexual orientation. I didn’t feel like I had to. I was just living my life, not necessarily in the closet, but I was living my life,” Sykes told a crowd at a gay rights rally in Las Vegas on Saturday.

“Everybody that knows me personally they know I’m gay. But that’s the way people should be able to live their lives,” she said.

Sykes, who is known for her feisty and blunt style, said the passage of California’s Proposition 8 made her feel like she was “attacked.”

“Now, I gotta get in their face,” she said. “I’m proud to be a woman. I’m proud to be a black woman, and I’m proud to be gay.”

Sykes’ appearance at the Las Vegas rally surprised organizers. She was in town performing at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
