Last night were the GLAAD Awards. The BRAVO crew was in full force joined by RUNWAY designers Emmett, Kara, and Daniel V (capped by pristine hair, natch). It was the first benefit I've been to where they start charging for wine after the first bottle.
Phil Donahue and Marlo Thomas were at the table next to ours. I love them. Both have been pioneers in the fight for gay rights and a whole lot more. They seemed like they were there because they wanted to be. I wonder how they felt about buying the second bottle of wine.
QUEER EYE was nominated but unfortunately lost to an episode of 30 DAYS. Ang Lee was greeted by a rapturous ovation, Erasure performed, and the presenters included Soledad O'Brien, Wilmer Valderrama, and Petra Nemcova. It was a pretty long night and I would've settled for La Lucci.
