Tracy Morgan Credits Father’s AIDS Death With Learning About Homophobia

After apologizing for his homophobic remarks, Tracy Morgan has committed to working with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) to make amends, according to a GLAAD statement. His homophobic comments were made during a recent stand-up comedy show in Nashville, Tennessee. Morgan agreed to meet in New York City with clients of the Ali Forney Center, which helps at-risk LGBT youth. The comedian said his father’s AIDS-related death in 1987 helped him learn about homophobia, prejudice and stigma.
