Ellen talks about the day-after on Proposition 8

EllenGreg Hernandez found himself with almost-face time with Ellen DeGeneres, thanks to a conference call “on the books for weeks” to discuss her upcoming TBS special. The publicist made the standard noises about Ellen-would-only-discuss-the-special; happily, Greg ignored that lunatic, post-Prop. 8 directive.

“I think the next day (after the election) a lot of people felt energized about Obama and excited for that — then there was that big, loud voice saying, ‘You are not equal to us’ and that feels bad – really, really bad. A loud voice saying, ‘You don’t deserve the same rights.’ So it took a little bit of air out of me from the night before.

Hernandez’s full interview is available at his Daily News blog, Out in Hollywood.
