My GLAAD Media Awards red carpet gallery!

Am just managing to get this up today, about 48 hours late.

You can blame the TCM Classic Film Festival for that.

Yesterday, they screened both Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and I just had to be there.

Will write about that in another post.

Saturday, I had a nice spot on the red carpet at the GLAAD Media Awards and what made it even nicer was getting to work alongside one of my favorite bloggers, Matthew Rettenmund of Boy Culture fame.

He’s a hoot.

We were initially a few spaces away from each other but kept going over and gabbing with each other so much that the cool team from Autostraddle offered to switch with me!

Anyway, we’d spot people and try and interview them or, in some cases, just take their picture.

We had the misfortune of being stationed just before the cute guys from LOGO who all the publicists wanted to make sure their clients spoke to.

So they would try to either drag or rush them past us or give us a stern look that said: “Three questions tops and we’re outa here.”

I’m kind of assertive in these situations – just get a case of red carpet fever – so got pretty much all the folks I wanted: Rita Moreno, Ross Mathews, Laverne Cox, Carmen Carrera, Guy Wilson, Kate Kansi, GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis and The Fosters stars Teri Polo, and Sherri Saum.

So, here are my photos from the red carpet. We were in a strange, dimly lit portion of the red carpet but I did the best I could – sorry the photo of Eric (“McSteamy”) Dane is so blurry – he held the pose for me which I appreciated but he did not break stride so there you go.
