Chely Wright - "I hear the word 'tolerance'âthat some people are trying to teach people to be tolerant of gays. I'm not satisfied with that word. I am gay, and I am not seeking to be 'tolerated'. One tolerates a toothache, rush-hour traffic, an annoying neighbor with a cluttered yard. I am not a negative to be tolerated." Chely married Lauren Blitzer in August of 2011.
