GLAAD Awards Los Angeles (Audio)

By Charlotte Robinson, April 02, 2017
The first leg of the 28th Annual GLAAD Awards took place last night Saturday April 1st in Los Angeles at The Beverly Hilton. Patricia Arquette actress & activist received the Vanguard Award for her role as an ally to our LGBTQ community & as a fierce advocate for her late sister transgender actress Alexis Arquette stating, “She wanted to help move the world forward to a time in the future where every trans kid could live up to their potential… help move the world forward to a time where trans were seen as complete, whole & equal human beings… whatever mark I have made in activism will pale in the light of Alexis’ bravery.” “Moonlight” won for Outstanding Film continuing its winning streak. Writer Tarell Alvin Mccraney accepted the award on behalf of the film stating, “We win when we give our children, the ones who are going missing in the night, or wondering how much they matter to us, to each other, to the law… give them the courage, the tools & resources to scatter their light across the cinema walls & make the face of heaven so fine. We won for Moonlight today, but how are we winning tomorrow?” Amazon’s Transparent won Outstanding Drama Series & Outstanding Comedy Series. In this exclusive audio byte we talked to fierce LGBTQ allies Judith Light & Jeffrey Tambor at the GLAAD Media Awards about the importance of using their celebrity to make change for LGBTQ & gender equality stating, “What is most important is that lives are being saved."
