VIDEO: Vanessa Hudgens Talks GIGI, Her Support for LGBT Community & More!
On why she's an ally to the LGBT community, Vanessa said, "People can be very closed minded and I think it's not right. I don't think it's fair. I think it's important for us to stand up for people and to have each other's back, and to be involved with the gay community and support the community," Hudgens said. "I'm a very open person. Love comes first for me. I don't see people as gay or straight. I see you as good person and not good person. Like, if you're a good person, I will love you. It does not matter what you are."
On how her new role as Gigi in the musical "Gigi" on Broadway reminds people to live the life they love, "I love doing Gigi so much because she's such a strong, independent, powerful, young woman. And I think that that's so important, and it's important to create your own future and not let others plan your life for you. And Gigi does that. So it's just a nice lovely little reminder of how you are in control of your future and your happiness no matter what anyone else might think."
Vanessa also voiced her support for GLAAD's #GotYourBack campaign, which empowers LGBT people and their allies to speak out in support of acceptance.
