The GLAAD Media Awards, which will honor former President Bill Clinton and top Hollywood attorney Steve Warren next Saturday in Los Angeles, are drawing quite a crowd. Stars coming out (no pun intended) to participate in the show include Leonardo Di Caprio, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence, Drew Barrymore, Tobey McGuire, Elle Fanning, Matt Bomer, Alex Pettyfer, Betty White, Johnny Galecki and Ellen Barkin. More names expected to be added.
EXCLUSIVE: The 24th annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles has set its honorees: former President Bill Clinton will receive GLAAD’s first Advocate for Change Award; and Steve Warren, the top Hollywood attorney, will receive the Stephen F. Kolzak Award.
The event will be held at the JW Marriott on April 20 and there will be more excitement than usual in the air as this is right in the midst of Supreme Court deliberations regarding the constitutionality of Prop 8 and DOMA, which will have profound impact on gay marriage and whether equal protections extend to gays and lesbians. That landmark decision is expected to be delivered in June. Big star power is expected at the event. Among the confirmed presenters so far are Leonardo DiCaprio, Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lawrence. They are all Warren’s clients.
