In honor of Gay Pride Month, we asked openly gay Cuban blogger Perez Hilton a series of questions.

In this exclusive video interview, The Queen of All Media talks candidly about series of LGBT topics. He talks about how President Obama's policy towards gay Americans has changed drastically over the course of his presidency, explains why he thinks religion not only condemns ("but also conditions") homophobia, notes the difference between same-sex marriage and gay marriage, and explains why he believes equality is inevitable.

And because Hilton is a proud Cuban-American who is connected to his culture and, one of the few openly gay Latino celebs in Hollywood (aside from Ricky Martin, Wilson Cruz, and "Project Runway" winner Mondo Guerra), we also asked him if he thinks attitudes towards the LGBT community are changing in the Latino community. Here's what he had to say:

"I don't know. I'm sure they are...But the Latino community is still...I don't know. That's a good question. I know from experience that my family is receptive. It wasn't easy at first, but my mom is my best friend now and she's a big Cuban mom and I love her. So, if my mom's attitudes have been able to grow and evolve, then I think that others in the Latino community can," Hilton said.

"What's important though is for Gay Latinos to be out and visible and to share our stories. Because when you know somebody that is gay, it is harder for people to hate and harder to discriminate, and harder to say, 'you shouldnt have the same rights as me.'"

Mary Edna González was elected last month in El Paso as the representative for House District 75 making history as she became the only openly gay state lawmaker in Texas and the first woman to represent El Paso's eastern Lower Valley in the state House. She will head to Austin in January and with no Republican contendor she may become the second openly LGBT legislator in Texas' history.

González said that while she is excited to be part of this historical moment, she wants the elections to be about her qualifications and her proposals. Not about her sexual identity.

González has a masters degree in social justice from St. Edward's University and bachelor's degree in history and Mexican-American studies from the University of Austin. She is currently working towards her Ph.D. at the University of Texas at Austin. González was a visiting professor at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas teaching social justice.
