Drew Barrymore, Wanda Sykes, “Glee,” and “A Single Man” honored: 2010 GLAAD Awards

By Greg Hernandez

Love, love, love Drew Barrymore and it was wonderful to see her honored at last night’s GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles.

Drew has been a lifelong friend of the LGBT community and shown her devotion with dramatic appearances at anti-Prop 8 rallies in recent years.

GLAAD’s prestigious Vanguard Award, which honors efforts to increase visibility and understanding of the gay community, was presented to Drew by Iron Chef Cat Cora.

In an entertaining video shown before Drew took the stage to accept her trophy, she listed several of her inspirational gay colleagues, including her agent, lawyer, doctor, stylists and one of her dogs.

“The thing that means the most to me about an evening like this, and why I want to fight and be outspoken, is because there are so many people who are in desperate need of family,” Drew said in her speech. “So whatever governments we have to overcome, whatever adversity people have to overcome to create these families and have the legal things be out of the way so that love can exist and people can take care of one another, that’s the most important thing in the world. That we take care of each other.”
