Celebrities come together for the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards. The GLAAD Media Awards celebrate outstanding representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community and their allies on TV, in film, and in the news. In attendance were several celebrities, including Anderson Cooper, Snooki, who shows off her 42lbs weight loss, JWOWW, and even Mama June from “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” who also shows off her 100lbs weight loss! Madonna was also in attendance wearing a boy scout uniform.
The pop icon also presented Anderson Cooper with the Vito Russo Award, she explained her Boys Scouts attire saying, “I wanted to be a Boy Scout, but they wouldn’t let me join. I think that’s f–ked up. I can build a fire. I know how to pitch a tent. I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees. Listen, I wanna do for the community. But most importantly, I know how to scout for boys. So I think that I should be allowed to be a Boy Scout and I think they should change their stupid rules.”
After her statement she then planted a huge kiss on Anderson Cooper! The Vito Russo Award is given to one who is an openly LGBT member in the media and promotes equality. Here are a few pics from Sunday night’s event.
