Sara Ramirez Reaffirms her Love and Support of LGBTs

For Callie and Arizona fans it’s been a couple of long, dry weeks with Grey’s Anatomy off the air for a week and last night’s Meredith / Christina – centric episode in which Arizona was completely sidelined. But the big-piped, beautiful Tony winner who plays Callie, one Ms. Sara Ramirez, has taken this down time to re-affirm her love of her LGBTs.

For Callie and Arizona fans it’s been a couple of long, dry weeks with Grey’s Anatomy off the air for a week and last night’s Meredith / Christina – centric episode in which Arizona was completely sidelined. But the big-piped, beautiful Tony winner who plays Callie, one Ms. Sara Ramirez, has taken this down time to reaffirm her love of her LGBTs.

Ramirez, who’s played bisexual Callie through boyfriends, husbands, best friends and lovers and headstrong female heart surgeons before falling for her wife Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) spoke out for her LGBT people in an interview with Latina.com.

"I’m always going to support the LGBT community and equal rights for the LGBT community," Ramirez said. "That’s going to be with me ‘till the day I die and beyond. I mean, that’s just what it is!"

A long-time activist for LGBT issues, Ramirez has appeared in pro-gay Spanish language PSAs and she started a foundation for her gay best friend Al. D. Rodriguez, who died of liver disease. In the interview she touched on the gay haters, essentially saying she can’t fathom people who don’t support the community. "I'm always amazed by that [lack] of compassion, I really am," Ramirez told Latina.com. "But I imagine that those kinds of people that are stuck in that whole thing—that whole train of thought {Laughs}—I don't know when they were so hurt that they can't possibly have compassion for someone else in that respect.”
