It was a fun time last night at the Trevor Gala in New York as celebrities turned up to support the cause. The Trevor Project is the leading national organization focused on
crisis and suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth. The guest list included Carson Kressley, Mark Consuelos, Cheyenne Jackson, Gavin Creel, Dustin Lance Black, John Bartlett, Jewel, and Meghan McCain.
Meghan McCain, daughter of Republican Sen. John McCain spoke to The Advocate about marriage equality, saying that, “The
reason why I became so vocal about it is because it is so
important to me and I didn’t see any
politicians, even President Obama, doing
anything. At this point, I
don’t care what leader, what party, comes out
and supports marriage equality, as long as somebody
starts doing it. I hope that will be President Obama, I hope
that will be my father, I hope it will be lots of
people. I think it’s the type of thing
that’s really coming to a fever pitch. People are
really angry. People really want response. I hope
President Obama can do that.”
The night included at honor for Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, and performances from Jewel and Gavin Creel.
Enjoy some pictures from the event. I really Jewel’s dress. And Gavin Creel’s hat. Too bad they wouldn’t work together.
