The 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards were held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in L.A. last night, attracting top names—including some of the biggest millennial stars.
Taylor Swift was a surprise presenter, handing the Stephen F. Kolzak Award to Orange Is the New Black babe Ruby Rose. The award is given to out LGBT people in who have fought homophobia in the public sphere. Check out the list of distinguished honorees since 1991.
Demi Lovato won the Vanguard Award, which has also gone to many household names, ever since 1993. The award was presented to her by tour mate and former Camp Rock co-star Nick Jonas, to which Demi said, “What people don't know about me is—I know that you all love Nick Jonas, but I actually have a bigger dick than he does. And a huge set of balls.”
I guess Demi is becoming the new Elizabeth Taylor.
I know a lot of us are sick of Caitlyn Jenner, especially due to her political wrongheadedness, but check out her tender speech upon winning Outstanding Reality Program (tying with I Am Jazz) for I Am Cait.
Perhaps the biggest entertainment news story of the evening was the first public appearance of Lilly, formerly Andy, Wachowski, of The Matrix fame. Looking lovely in a floor-length gown, she announced the new her with a simple, “Ta-da!”
Wachowski spoke eloquently (and with dark humor) about her serendipitous coming-out “with the help of the fabulous people at GLAAD, Nick Adams, as well as the extremely sensitive and courteous people at the Daily Mail—thanks, guys!”
A one-hour special devoted to the awards will air on Logo on Monday, April 4, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. That's tomorrow, guys.
