Kelly Osbourne: Transgender People Are Some Of The Bravest People On Earth

Kelly Osbourne, daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, has apologized to the transgender community.

In an op-ed published Friday at the blogs of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) and The Transadvocate, the 27-year-old Osbourne apologized for calling transgender model Elle Schneider a “tranny” during a recent interview with Glamour UK.

“As a lifelong LGBT ally and friend, I feel it is my duty to not only apologize for my wrong but to also correct it,” Osbourne wrote. “The word 'tr*nny' is a derogatory and hurtful word. I was completely ignorant to this and soon came to realize most of my peers and LGBT friends are too. This is a word I will no longer use or allow.” Full story here!
