Dan Levy on parental love.png

Had I not had the love to give me a sense of security, I don't know if I would have found my way out of the closet, let alone create the opportunity for myself to tell stories on television that have effected some kind of positive change in the world," he told the audience.  "Support, encouragement and love: Three relatively simple acts of kindness that can change the course of a person's life."

Dan Levy, 'out and proud' Schitt's Creek star, accepts GLAAD award.  Canadian actor-producer honoured for promoting acceptance of LGBTQ community.
