Stars show their support for the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network

Some of my favourite actors were out in support of GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network) this past Friday at a pre-awards event held at the luxury apartment complex, blu in Beverly Hills. Among the celebrities attending were the sexy and talented Wilson Cruz, the fabulous Ginnifer Goodwin (HBO's Big Love) and the divine Sara Ramirez (Grey’s Anatomy).

Sponsored by blu, the event was a precursor to GLSEN’s fifth annual “Respect Awards”.

This year GLSEN will honor HBO, Shonda Rhimes, David Bohnett and the Student Advocate of the Year at the Respect Awards on October 9th in Los Angeles.

GLSEN’s Respect Awards, held annually in Los Angeles and New York, recognize individual and corporate leaders who have helped propel GLSEN’s efforts to ensure safe schools for all of America’s students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
