The 2013 GLAAD Media Awards took place on Saturday (April 20) in Los Angeles. Drew Barrymore hosted the event at the J.W. Marriott Los Angeles at L.A. Live which featured a performance by Kelly Rowland.
On hand for the annual event were Leonardo Dicaprio, Tobey Maguire, Charlize Theron, Matt Dallas with his fiance Blue Hamilton, Darren Criss, Alex Pettyfer who gave Betty White a smooch, Chris Evans with his gay brother Scott and many more including Jennifer Lawrence who debuted a brand new hairstyle. The Silver Linings Playbook actress was there to present the inaugural Advocate for Change Award to Bill Clinton for his work campaigning to legalize same-sex marriage.
“I want to keep working on this until not only DOMA is no longer the law of the land, but until all people, no matter where they live, can marry the people they love. I believe you will win the DOMA fight, and I think you will win the Constitutional right to marry. If not tomorrow, then the next day or the next day.” – Bill Clinton
In 1996, the ex-president signed the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defined marriage as a partnership only between a man and a woman. In recent years, he’s changed his stance and campaigned heavily against anti-gay legislation proposed in various states. He credits his daughter Chelsea and her gay friends for seeing the way. Others honored last night include The New Normal, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Days of Our Lives. Check out all the winners, Clinton’s speech and a few more photos below.
Last night, Matt Dallas of Kyle XY fame came out publicly by sharing some exciting news. The actor tweeted, “Starting off the year with a new fiancé, @bluehamilton. A great way to kick off 2013!” The then shared a photo of his new fiance and their dog. So cute! Many knew of their relationship already, but it was never made public until last night.
Dallas’ fiance is a singer and music producer named Brandon Blue Hamilton and many already knew they were together, but this is the first time it’s been made public. Back in June of 2012, Blue landed a magazine cover and was named Atlanta’s Hottest New Producer and one to watch for in X-Poszed Magazine.
Check out the photo that Dallas included in the tweet when he shared the big news. Congratulations boys!
I’ve been debating whether or not to post about this guy for a while now, but after reading about him on PEREZ today I HAD to divulge the info.
Two closeted Hollywood gays are dating!
Matt Dallas (from KYLE XY), who I have a first hand account pretty strong evidence of a homo hookup when he was here filming in Vancouver, but I swore I wouldn’t tell who with because I’ll get shot, and the hottie from Mean Girls Jonathan Bennett (who I didn’t suspect was a homo) are apparently dating!
