GLAAD Media Awards Wrap-Up - Part One

by MK Scott - Special to the SGN

27TH ANNUAL GLAAD MEDIA AWARDS
LOS ANGELES
BEVERLY HILTON
April 2


After a year off, I was back in LA and covering my 3rd GLAAD Red, I mean Blue, Carpet. I had to catch up with some old pals - from Stephen Guarino, Candis Cayne, Peter Paige, Wilson Cruz, Carmen Carrera, David Milbern and more.

I also had got to chat with Legends from Judith Light to Patricia Arquette to Icons like Perez Hilton and Michael Sam.

Here is my collection of photos from the Blue Carpet as well as the extra tidbits from the stars:

Judith Light ('Transparent') - When told that her Emmy winning scene from 'OLTL' ['One Life to Live'] in 1979 is still remembered today. She was overjoyed!

Stephen Guarino ('Bear City,' 'Eastsiders') - is 'hoping' to be back in Seattle this fall for the 'Bear City 3' Premiere.

Candis Cayne ('I Am Cait') - This photo was at the after party, but I did catch up with our pal, Cayne, who we interviewed in 2010, on the Blue Carpet. The main question was the future of 'I Am Cait.' Candis revealed that they purposely opened with the political debate and as we see in future episodes, Caitlyn's views will also be transitioning. ('I Am Cait' won for Best Reality). I had to ask Cayne about the road trip, and she said the worst part was not being in full makeup!

John Giddings ('Secret Guide to Fabulous') - Had to tell John about my Fab Podcast called 'It's FAB'! Sarah Ellis (GLAAD Prez) - I had two questions for Sarah about GLAAD's standings on two huge issues including the Murder of Will Horton on 'DAYS' ['The Days of Our Lives'] on the anniversary of Matthew Shepard's murder. She said they are working on it. Also I asked about what message will it send when the recipient of the 2014 Kolzak award, Laverne Cox, will be portraying a Transvestite in Fox's 'Rocky Horror.' Ellis replied that Cox is a leader in the Trans community and respects her decision.

David Millbern and Olivia Harewood ('Modd Couples') - Great to see pal, Millbern with the very funny, Harewood. I congratulated Millbern on the successful indie flick, Hush up, Sweet Charlotte and he boasted about his new show on HERE called 'Modd Couples' and even wanted me and my BF to appear on the show!

Harry Shum, Jr ('Shadow Hunters') - I totally had 'Glee' on my mind as well as his beefcake photos, but that made me want to tune in to his new show on Freeform!

Peter Paige ('QAF,' 'The Fosters') - Confirmed the end of Jonnor on 'The Fosters' but confirmed Jude has a new love in the new season. Also confirmed that the 'QAF' ['Queer As Folk'] reboot is happening in the near future, but nothing yet.

Wilson Cruz (TV Icon) - Wilson said he misses working with Octavia Spencer on the 'Red Band Society,' but excited about his Doc on LGBT TV coming soon.

Michael Sam (NFL Icon) - Sam still wants to play! So let him! He was also honored to be part of the Out to Win Doc that scored Big at the Film Fests in 2015-16.

Chamique Holdsclaw (WNBA Legend) - Chamique was there to promote her new Doc, Mind/Game, which debuted on Logo on May 3rd. I also learned she went to high school with Sue Bird, of The Seattle Storm!

Carmen Carrera (Super Model/Rupaul's Drag race) - Carrerra still longs to be the first Trans Victoria Secret Model!

Scott Turner Schofield ('The Bold and the Beautiful') Scott started recurring on 'The Bold and the Beautiful' last spring at the height of Maya's Trans story. I brought up that Chaz Bono made a cameo on the show last month and I asked if their paths crossed. Sadly, Turner Schofield wasn't included in those scenes.

Perez Hilton (Gossip Legend) - Perez is back in Hollywood for good and I paid homage to him who opened the door to celebrity bloggers, like myself. I asked, has fatherhood mellowed him? He said, indeed it has!

Patricia Arquette (Oscar Winner) - Arquette was delighted to learn Boyhood was sold out during the 2014 SIFF, which garnered her her first acting award out of many for the role, and for the limited run. I also asked if 'CSI: Cyber' is done for good and she replied, it may not be over yet!
