Celebrities Attend 24th Annual GLAAD Awards (PHOTOS)
Last night, celebrities came out for the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards that took place in NYC, and it seemed like everyone brought some of their own glam to the red carpet.
While some of the ladies dazzled the red carpet before the show, it was Brett Ratner who stole the spotlight when he received the “Inaugural Ally” award.
The award-winning director was given the honor for his work with the “Coming Out For Equality” campaign this past year.
Our very own Russell Simmons was in attendance and dapper as ever, adding some funk with a colorful plaid shirt.
Snooks revealed from the caption that her and her bestie Jenni are huge fans of the hillbilly reality starlet, and judging from the picture it looks like June is a fan of theirs too.
Madonna also came out to the event, but stirred up the controversy by dressing a boy scouts uniform in order to bring awareness to their ban on gay members.
The diva was the featured guest at the event, which honored Anderson Cooper as the Vito Russo Award Recipient and she said:
“I wanted to be a boy scout, but they wouldn’t let me join. I think that’s f–ked up. I can build a fire. I know how to pitch a tent. I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees. Listen, I wanna do for the community. But most importantly, I know how to scout for boys. So I think that I should be allowed to be a Boy Scout and I think they should change their stupid rules.”
LOL! Go Madonna!
We love seeing celebrities showing so much love to each other! Congratulations to Brett on his award!
