This gorgeous human being survived growing up in Jersey, years of torment by a bigger brother, winters in Vermont, and cancer. Today, she’s getting married, and I am bursting with joy for her and my new brother-in-law @martel_steve. I love you both. Congratulations!! #itsmarteltime
Know that feeling when you meet someone who makes you really smile? Imagine coming home to tell the most important people in your life about it, only to find them reject you and kick you out of the home you grew up in. That is the unfortunate reality for THOUSANDS of #LGBTQ youth who are abandoned by their parents for loving who they love or living their truth. Alec and I are blessed to have the best parents and to have grown up privileged, and we were shocked to learn that even in 2018, more than 1700 kids a year come to the Ali Forney Center seeking help. This past weekend, we supported amazing organizations like the @aliforneycenter and @gmhc at #sprayfireisland who provide housing and other basic services for youth. I hope you’ll consider donating too!
As we kick off #PRIDE weekend, I want to wish a very happy Pride 🏳️🌈🏳️🌈 to all of my friends and family in the #LGBTQ community. Also sending hugs and ❤️ to those out there still struggling with their sexual orientation, gender identity/expression and everyone else who’s just trying to figure out who they are. (Also to my man, @alec_vlahos, who is too good to me and will be spending the weekend studying for boards 😭😭.) #tbt#instagay
Starting my morning with a ☕️ of joe, soon to be officially “Morning Joe.” I’ve been a fan of the program since right after graduating college, and I’m so excited to be joining the team in a few weeks. I’m sad to leave behind my GMA family, but can’t say enough about the friends I’ve made there. #MSNBC#MorningJoe#GMA#ABC#chubbies#journalism#news#beach
