>ET Talks to Bill Paxton, Louis Van Amstel at Respect Awards – LA Kickoff Party About Importance of GLSEN
>Entertainment Tonight stopped by the GLSEN Respect Awards – Los Angeles kickoff party and BBQ on Sunday at Evo Couture Residences in LA. ET talked to Bill Paxton of “Big Love,” Louis Van Amstel of “Dancing with the Stars” and GLSEN Executive Director Eliza Byard about the importance of valuing what makes us different and teaching respect for all people in schools.
“Whether you’re gay or straight you deserve respect,” Paxton said. “As we evolve as a society, that’s the thing. We might not agree politically, philosophically or whatever our sexual orientation is, but everything has to have respect. To me, that’s what it’s about. It’s a great cause and I’m glad to support it.”
