Kirk Cameron was given a firm dressing down at the Glaad Media Awards at the weekend by Tracey Gold, one of his co-stars in the show 'Growing Pains.' Gold came out against his recently-made claims about homosexuality being "unnatural" by telling the gathered audience that, though Cameron had "spoken his mind" on the issue, she also wanted to voice hers, which she then did by saying "I want my voice of love and support to be louder. There's nothing wrong with being gay." According to the New York Daily News the brief speech by Gold, one of the presenters of the evening, was met with a huge response by those in attendance with co-presenter Carson Kressley adding his support by cheering ''Go, Tracey!" and adding: "Just for the record, I don't like Kirk Cameron's hair!"
Last week Cameron had appeared on the 'Today' show, reports E! Online, and stood his ground over his previous comments, stating "I love all people, I hate no one and, you know, when you take a subject and you reduce it to something like a four-second sound bite and a check mark on a ballot, I think that that's inappropriate and insensitive."
Continuing, he added "Nobody should mistreat anybody-homosexuals should not be mistreated, heterosexuals should not be mistreated, bisexuals should not be mistreated. All of us who really think deeply about social issues like gay marriage and abortion and homosexuality have convictions on issues, and we all have our convictions formed by different things, and mine are formed by my faith, they're informed by the word of God, and I found that to be an anchor for me, a compass and a guide for me. When people start bullying each other and calling each other names for those different convictions, then you get into problems".
