I've noticed this season of Tyra's talk show she has really been doing the damn thing. From episodes like black women who bleach their skin (and their kids' skin!), racism, sexuality, domestic abuse among teens and even the journey of Isis King -- she ain't Oprah, but she is doing some early Montel Williams realness. I have to admit, she wears me out sometimes, but you have to respect this gal's hustle.
Last week at the GLAAD Awards she was a special honoree. Below is the speech she gave. Kudos to Tyra.
