Actress Sally Field was honored at the Human Rights Campaign's Ally for Equality Award on Saturday, Oct. 6 in Washington, D.C. She discussed how she supported her son when he came out.

Fields also thanked the HRC for the work on equal rights:

"You all have fought for him as surely as you were one of his parents. You've changed and are changing the lives of little boys and girls who realized somewhere along the way they're just different from their other brothers and sisters. And so the fuck what," she said during her speech.
