Kristen Hampton Gay

Kristen was requested to serve as emcee at the Charlotte Lesbian and Gay Fund’s annual fund-raising luncheon, but her knee-jerk inclination was to politely decline.

This is not because she was afraid of public speaking or because she thought she’d make a poor host, but because she’s gay.

Hampton’s fear was that it would get out that she emceed an event with the word gay in it; that her viewers would find out she was gay; that they’d inundate her with horrible, hateful messages; and that, ultimately, so many of her fans would turn on her that this sanctuary she’d spent eight years building for people seeking stories drenched in positivity would crumble.
