Im not a big Lisa Lampanelli fan but this is FIERCE, and I like her much more for doing this.

In May 2010, her generosity took on another level to fight homophobia, bigotry and hatred. Ms. Lampanelli performed her comedy showcase at the Topeka Performing Arts Center in Topeka, Kansas. Members of Topeka's Westboro Baptist Church, headed by Fred Phelps and known for its extreme anti-gay views, planned to protest Lampanelli's show because of her steadfast support of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. In response to the protest, Ms. Lampanelli pledged to donate $1,000 to GMHC for each protestor who showed up. In the end, she donated $50,000 and brought the check to the organization's new offices at 446 West 33rd Street in New York City.

Lisa is a dirty old broad - and that's why I and thousands (millions?) of other fags love her - the girl puts her money where her mouth is - no matter where that mouth has been!
