Oprah has a couple of LGBT interviews (including Kimberly Reed)
On July 6, Oprah ran an interview with lesbian Country and Western star (whose music has a Christian outlet) Cherly Wright. Her father was present. That was preceded by a discussion of the medically miraculous recovery of Bret Michels from a massive brain aneurysm, which may have had a 20% survival prospect. The link for the story is (web url) here.
Today (July 7) Oprah presents Kimberly Reed, one time high school football star, who became a female and then a lesbian. But she made a documentary about the rest of her family, “Prodigal Sons”, reviewed on the movies blog, March 12, 2010. The “other Scott Peck”, son of a Marine Corps general involved in the 1993 debate on gays in the military, had a radio talk show in 1993 where he interviewed a Navy corpsman who left, had a sex change, became a lesbian, and remained in Naval intelligence as a civilian.
