In Twitter Chat with GLAAD, MSNBC's Thomas Roberts Insists Electing Pro-LGBT Leaders 'Step #1' for Justice

Thursday was the annual "Spirit Day" festivities of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), and no one was more cooperative than MSNBC. Gay activist/anchor Thomas Roberts participated in a Twitter chat on Thursday afternoon with GLAAD president Sarah Kate Ellis (or as he called her, "Madame President SKE.")

In the chat, someone asked about electing candidates to legislate for the gay agenda, which naturally, Roberts tweeted was "Step #1" for "equality and justice" to prevail in America:

The GLAAD president echoed the MSNBC anchor:

Back in February, Roberts hosted what looked very much like a GLAAD corporate film/infomercial with Ellis at MSNBC.

Comcast vice president of government affairs Klayton Fennell posting a message underneath that segment oozing: “Proud of #Comcast and #NBCUniversal 4 our LGBT inclusion. And proud 2 be on #GLAAD Board as it rewrites the script on LGBT equality. #GLAAD creates a world where everyone can #LiveTheLIfeTheyLove.”

The TV mentions of "Spirit Day" came yesterday on ABC's and NBC's morning shows, on "The View" on ABC and  "The Talk" on CBS, on CNBC's "Squawk Box" and on CNN's "New Day," and on MSNBC at least six times.
