On Saturday night in Los Angeles, they’re rolling out the red carpet for the Human Rights Campaign Awards, the nation’s largest LGBT civil rights organization.
Here in New York, on the same night, GLAAD will host its 21st annual media awards dinner honoring Joy Behar who will receive the “Excellence in Media Award” and Cynthia Nixon, who will accept the “Vito Russo Award.”
It’s guaranteed to be a celeb-studded night, with Tony Award-winning actor Alan Cumming playing emcee for the evening. The guest list will be a who’s who of some of the great names of our times, including:
- Sigourney Weaver
- Gabourey Sidibe
- Bryan Batt
- Rosie Perez
- Sandra Bernhard
- Nigel Barker
- Jay Manuel
- Robert Verdi
- Jill Zarin
- Michael Patrick King
Entertaining the crowds will be the Tony Award-winning revival of HAIR as well as the Youth Pride Chorus.
Haute Living will have the photos from the event, so make sure to check our events page next week for some sneak peeks at what went on behind the velvet ropes.
