Following a rainbow colored weekend, you’d think the LGBTQ community would have been all tuckered out (at least for the next few nights). But mistaken you are! With less glitter than Sunday’s shindigs (and certainly a lot less nudity), it was nice to see celebs stepping out for a good cause: Monday night The Trevor Project hosted their annual charity event.
It's a cause we can get behind – The Trevor Project provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to the LGBTQ community. Each with their own story and struggles, star ambassadors of the charity (including Susan Sarandon, Brad Goreski, and Debra Messing) showed up to support the cause, and, after waltzing the red carpet, enjoyed a performance from fun. (the band), and a reality flashback to 1998 as Will & Grace took to the mic as, well, Will & Grace. Devil Wears Prada’s fabulous faux-gay Stanley Tucci (FYI, still not gay) threw some zinging one-liners before honoring Susan Sarandon with a Trevor Hero Award for her continual support and position as an openly vocal ally. Sporting a royal blue suit, embroidered and handmade in China, she spoke passionately of the project's importance. “It is up to us to somehow make it clear that being different is really fabulous.” A year since the legalization of gay marriage here in ol’ Empire State, we rocked over to the west side of town to show our support and throw the LGBTQ-ambassadors a few Qs of our own.
