Alright…I’m paraphrasing a bit in the title, but you sure can pick up that vibe from his interview with Logo NewNowNext. Here’s the interview…click ahead to the 1:15 mark to hear his comments on Proposition 8. [h/t to Towleroad]

Man crush aside (okay…I admit it, Mr Yuri), I’m extremely pleased that an artist like David Cook, who has a huge built-in audience waiting for his record (look for a top 3 debut this week, with about 300K in sales), will go out on a limb and make his voice heard on an issue that no one really expected him to say anything about in the first place. It’s straight allies like Cook, Yuri and Keith Olbermann that are going to make the difference in this struggle for equal rights. Whether you believe that marriage is the answer, or at least civil unions, or an end to ALL marriages, the fact remains that the LGBT community in the U.S. is still second class. We can’t marry, we can’t serve openly in the military, and in much of the country, we can still be fired simply for our sexual orientation. If that’s not second class, I don’t know what is.
