Well known comedian Wanda Sykes decided that it was time for her to go public with her sexuality. And she did just that at the Join The Impact rally in Las Vegas on Saturday.

Wanda is an Emmy award-winning American stand-up comedian and actress. She is well known for her blunt observations on current events, the differences between the sexes and races and life in general. She is probably best known for her roles on two Emmy winning series, The New Adventures of Old Christine, opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Barb and on HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, as herself.

She has never been secretive about her sexuality but she has never come out and discussed it publicly before either. She told the crowd that the passage of Proposition 8 spurred her decision to officially come out.

"Everybody that knows me personally, they know I’m gay. But that’s the way people should be able to live their lives.”

“We took a huge leap forward and then got dragged 12 feet back. I felt like I was being attacked, personally attacked — our community was attacked."

Watch her full rally statement below:
