Amber Heard Amber Heard

Amber Heard credits GLAAD for being a reason she was able to come out.

Walking the red carpet at GLAAD'S 25th anniversary party with her partner, Tasya van Ree, Heard told AfterEllen.com: "GLAAD is one of the many reasons that I, as a 24-year-old, can come out ... If it weren't for opinions being changed, people being influenced, people being engaged to do the right thing, then there would be no prerogative for anyone to come out."

The Pineapple Express star, who presented GLAAD founder Richard Jennings an award Saturday night, added, "I hate the idea of a label just as much as anyone else, but I'm with who I'm with, I love who I love."
