The GLAAD Awards took place in New York City on Saturday night, and Robin and Taylor went out into the blustery day to capture the event. Taylor has some interviews with maintenance men which perhaps she will share with you soon.
In the meantime, check out the fantastic red carpet photos by Robin Roemer for Autostraddle.
Cynthia Nixon won the Vito Russel award, presented to an openly lesbian or gay member of the entertainment or media community for outstanding contributions toward eliminating homophobia. Here’s Cynthia at a New York City Gay Marriage Rally in 2009:

SHE SCORES. do people say that? i’ve been needing to say that for a long time.
also, thanks for not failing at this like i did robin!
I think the readers would really appreciate both our running commentary filled with wit, charm, rum and stupidity, and also what the maintenance staff has to say.
“wit, charm, rum and stupidity” really covers it, i think. well put!
it was nice meeting you guys on the carpet. ’til the next one.
also thanks for posting our paulson vid!
that’s not just Vogue Evolution at the top, that’s miss Sahara Davenport from RuPaul’s Drag Race with them! Hottt!
Lovely photos Robin dear :)
not pictured is rosie perez’zz neck brace which she must have been holding in her hand and put on after this picture but before she finished the red carpet.
Also, am I missing something totally obvious here? Why was everyone wearing that delightful sky/baby blue color? Coincidence?
alan cumming’s outfit was by far my fave. why is he so fucking cute?!
i want his slouchy pants (that i think had patches?)
Alan Cumming looks fantastic and he is awesome in the good wife. Nice photos Robin!
One day a man is crying to you about how your gay best friend is not really into the relationship in the same way that he is, and the next day/10 years later that man is on the red carpet with someone named Ashley Shaw, wearing a blue blazer that reminds me of liz feldman.
I don’t know anything about fashion, and until I read this comment I assumed the blue blaze wearing Malan Breton was a lesbian.
Jay Manuel and Malan Breton both really know how to push the envelope in men’s fashion and still look amazing. They are both very different in style but both very sharp dressers… and it’s clear that the 2 websites I have seen of this event show only a handful of people and they are shown on both. The reason is that they both are trend-setters in their own ways and those that KNOW fashion watch what both of these men wear.
Oh, is that what Rosie Perez is doing these days? Going to the sad ass GLAAD Awards? Poor thing. Nixon looks like she wants to slit her wrists. Poor thing.
