I am most thankful to TV's Ellen Degeneres and Sean Hayes for helping my mother accept my sexual orientation. However, my proudest moment was four years ago when the LGBT Community Center honored me. Although it was Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum who really filled the hall, I was so moved by all the beautiful and accomplished women who surrounded me that night.
