Who doesn’t love Kristin Chenoweth?

The charming Broadway star is talented, adorable and generous. She hasn’t forgotten the arts community in Oklahoma or her alma mater, Oklahoma City University.

We at Chicken-Fried News are not surprised when we hear the Broken Arrow native was honored by PFLAG National, an organization dedicated to uniting LGBTQ people with their allies.

According to Windy City Times, earlier this month, Chenoweth was one of three to receive an award at the eighth annual Straight for Equality Gala in New York. Actress Rosie O’Donnell presented the award.

“Not only is she the most amazing talented individual I’ve ever known, she is without a doubt the most loving, honest, fully open-hearted human being I’ve ever met in my life,” O’Donnell was quoted in the Times.

That’s how we feel, Rosie!

Who doesn’t want to hug the charming little blonde who speaks about her Oklahoma roots? At the gala, Chenoweth recalled asking her conservative, religious grandmother why some believe that people who are gay are going to hell.

Chenoweth told the crowd her grandmother responded, “I read the Bible like I eat fish. I take the meat that serves me well, but I don’t choke on a bone.”
