NYC 26th GLAAD Media Awards

By Charlotte Robinson, May 08, 2015
We’re headed to NYC to cover the Red Carpet for the 26th GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday evening. As you know the GLAAD Media Awards recognize & honor media for their fair, accurate & inclusive representations of our LGBT community & the issues that affect our lives. They also fund GLAAD's work to amplify stories from the LGBT community that build support for equality. This fabulous event takes place on May 9th at the historic Waldorf Astoria in NYC. MSNBC television journalist Thomas Roberts will receive the Vito Russo Award from actress Lynda Carter. Anderson Cooper will present talk show host & actress Kelly Ripa with the Excellence in Media Award. We never know who will walk the red carpet with confirmed guests including Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, Trace Lysette (Transparent); Rupert Friend (Homeland); Jonathan Groff (Looking); Laverne Cox, Dascha Polanco (Orange Is the New Black); Janet Mock (So Popular!); Tituss Burgess (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt); Karla Mosley, Scott Turner Schofield, Crystal Chappell (The Bold and the Beautiful); out NBA player Jason Collins; out football player Michael Sam; out trans model Andreja Pejić; Monifah Carter (R&B Divas: Atlanta); out country singer Ty Herndon; Antigone Rising's Kristen Henderson; GLAAD National Spokesperson Omar Sharif, Jr. & GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis to name a few. I can’t wait to chat with all the celebrities to get their spin on our LGBT issues especially Laverne Cox who’s had quite a year. There are still a few tickets left so what are you waiting for? :)
