    Tender moments at last Saturday's GLAAD Awards, with top honoree Ricky Martin thanking his partner, and per usual some funny moments by fellow honoree Tina Fey. The rest was the usual, you know, with the people you're used to seeing at GLBT events.

    People like the Reverend Al Sharpton. :lol: Seriously, Sharpton was there to present a GLAAD honor to Russell Simmons, and the Rev sounded genuine and true. Wonders.

    I love that 30 Rock/Fey were honored for their 'Klaus & Greta" episode, the one where a drunken Liz outs her younger cousin over Christmas dinner, then later tries to keep said cousin from the perils of big city gay life ... and also helps create a ruse (by fake dating Jenna) for James Franco, who fears being outed. Gay rumors, ala Franco in real-life? No, rumors that he was in love with a Japanese sleeping pillow (which he was, turns out). Excellent episode which to its credit treats the gay storyline just like any other ... open for satire and liable to make the audience laugh themselves silly.

    Unlike a lot of prominent members of the African-American theocracy, Rev. Sharpton and Rev. Jesse Jackson have spoken out in support of LGBT rights. I still think they are both opportunists and shakedown artists, but I can't say that they are homophobes.
