inducted into the VIllage People a GLAAD Award last night.
We were not aware that he had finally come out of the closet, but we’re glad he can finally retire those young girls he loved charading around.
Sidenote: Doesn’t ol’ girl/boy/whatever to Russell’s right look like Ke$ha???
We hear Permed Up Al gave Uncle Rush his award.
Here’s a breakdown of the events:
NYC’s finest came out last night to celebrate the 22nd annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Marriott Marquis. Celebrity attendees and GLAAD honorees Ricky Martin and Russell Simmons strutted down the ROKK blue carpet and were treated to an evening filled with delicious ROKK Vodka cocktails, hilarious jokes from host Andy Cohen, and surprise appearances from Tina Fey (30 Rock), Vinny Guadagnino (Jersey Shore), and the ROKK Vodka Vikings.
In addition to providing the means for a celebratory evening, ROKK encouraged presenters and award winners to incorporate “ROKK” into their speeches as part of the “I Wanna ROKK” campaign. For every “ROKK” said during the show, ROKK pledged to donate $100 to GLAAD and the brand is proud to announce that $10,000 was raised last night! Celebrity attendees were also encouraged to sign a one-of-a-kind RÖKK photograph created by celebrity photographer Mike Ruiz. The unique piece of art, complete with all signatures from the three award shows, will be donated to GLAAD as a contribution to the organization’s 2011 OUTAuction.
Looks like they had a gay old time!
