Some people go to the movies, and some people go to dinner. When Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have a date night, they go Hollywood style—or at least they did this week, as the power couple headed out in Tinseltown on Oct. 23 to accept a joint award at the GLSEN Respect Awards.

The couple, who have been married since Oct. 2012, were honored at the event with the Inspiration Award for the impact they have had on the lives of LGBT youth. They briefly donned “Respect” hats, causing former N*Sync frontman Timberlake to quip,”We look like we’re in another boy band.”

He added, “And also, thank you for allowing mommy and daddy to have a rare date night out together with other adults. Honey, look around. This is what adults look like…They don’t smell like poopy diapers.”

Zachary Quinto was also honored at the ceremony with the Champion Award, while YouTube’s Mars Hallman received the Chairman’s Award

Additional guests included honorary co-chairs Bob Greenblatt, Marilyn and Jeffrey Katzenberg, Jim Parsons and Todd Spiewak, and Julia Roberts, as well as JJ Abrams, Sasha Alexander, Stephanie Bauer, Greg Berlanti, Jessica Capshaw, Jason Collins, Dana Delaney, Connor Franta, Kearran Giovanni, Gigi Gorgeous, Todrick Hall, Kingsley, George Kotsiopoulos, Gavin MacIntosh, Trina McGee-Davis, Robbie Rogers, Cody Saintgnue, Kirsten Vangsness, Joe Zee, and many more.

The GLSEN Respect Awards— an annual gala to recognize the exceptional efforts of individual and corporate leaders who have made a significant difference to ensure schools are safe and affirming for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students and their allies—took place at the Regent Beverly Wilshire.
