Wanda Sykes

Critically acclaimed comedian Wanda Sykes broke down barriers when she publicly came out as a lesbian at a same-sex marriage rally against Proposition 8, a bill banning new same-sex marriages in California. She has also raised awareness around anti-chaining legislation for dogs and brought attention to breast cancer and mastectomy procedures. She won a BET Comedy Award in 2005 for her funny role in Monster-in-Law.
