Jane Lynch, the openly lesbian American actress, singer, and activist received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last month in front of hordes of adoring fans, friends, and colleagues. The performer has been a huge celebrity presence within the gay rights movement in recent history, and is beloved for her comedic and entertaining performances in television, theater, and film. Lynch is one of those celebrities who radiates a joy for life and a passion for her craft, while still finding time to be a role model and human rights activist. One of her most notable performances in the last few years includes the hit television show Glee, and she’s also played roles in hilarious films and critically acclaimed off-Broadway performances.

Lynch received the 2,505th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the category of “Television,” and it can be found at 6640 Hollywood Boulevard. While in recent years her television role as the snarky, tracksuit-wearing Sue Sylvester on Glee has garnered her immense fame, the actress has been making people laugh and cheer throughout her hilarious performances in film since the 1990s. A woman of many talents, Lynch has also acted in more serious, dramatic roles in film and television, as well as in theater, where she has both written and performed.

It’s no wonder that Lynch received the honor of being part of the Walk of Fame; it’s something that she has envisioned and dreamt of since moving to Hollywood more than twenty years ago. In the ceremony following the unveiling of her star the actress said, “Maybe in 50 years, there will be some kid from a small town in Illinois doing that to my star,” nostalgically recounting her first trip to Hollywood and rushing right up to queer actress Greta Garbo’s star on the Walk of Fame.

Keep a lookout for more appearances from Jane Lynch on Glee and in theaters soon, as well as the release of a children’s book she’s currently working on. This woman is a role model, activist, and incredibly talented performer. She’s a star in more ways than one, and now, Hollywood’s Walk of Fame would agree.
