The Point Foundation may be the largest scholarship organization for LGBT students in the nation, but that doesn’t mean they don’t know how to party: On September 15, the organization held a star-studden concert fundraiser at L.A.’s Wiltern Theatre, hosted by comedian and Queer as Folk star Hal Sparks.

Celebrity guests like Lance Bass (right, with Michael Urie), Jenny McCarthy, Busy Philipps, Queen Latifah, Judith Light, Jamie Pressley and Brandon Routh enjoyed performances by Robin Thicke, Mark Ballas, Rock Mafia, John Tartaglia and Ellen Greene.

Urie, now starring on CBS’ Partners, presented the Point Inspiration Award to CBS Senior VP/ Chief Diversity Officer Josie Thomas in recognition of the network’s inclusive practices on both sides of the camera.

Foundation director  Jorge Valencia summed up the night best: “Voices On Point presented the positive side of young LGBTQ peoples’ lives–voices of resilience, inspiration and determination—as expressed by our Point Scholars. They shared the stage with talented artists who came to raise their voices in support of these young people, and the work we are doing at Point Foundation to empower them.”

    I wish Jenny Mccarthy hadn’t been invited. She’s long been a campaigner against life-saving vaccines on the discredited theory that it causes autism. She’s a dangerous advocate.
    PS, I love Jaime Pressly


    BRANDON…ooo baby..the last movie I saw with him “Fling” with my second BF,Steve Sandvoss..the beautiful movie “Latter Days”, I believe his first movie …the scene with Jacqueline Bisset was the very first scene shot on that movie, almost didn’t get made…and he had no clue what he was doing from an actor’s point of view! HAILS from Long Island where I grew up…(it’s a straight based movie)..Steve is so underrated as an actor…wishing he does more things and NAKED!!…it’s like “soft porn” but worth watching just for them and the females also give terrific performances…I like when actors are producers now…they have a “stake’ in what goes on, a decision goes by them and eventually , residuals…that’s the way to go as an actor now…but if you can’t OWN a studio, second best but look at
    ‘Magic Mike”!..cost 8-9 million to make and made so far $155 mil….that’s what I’m talking about and if something good is going to happen to someone in LA LA land, it’s Channing Tatum …from the start, many years ago when he was a nobody, him and his GF(soon to be wife) were always KIND to their fans online…and I don’t say that often because most shun the media and attention…well that Mike story is based on’s NOT a great movie but it is worth it’s weight in GOLD for the first shot of Channing’s Butt and he was out there ,nothing covered up(bedroom scene)..but I loved the way he moved in his earlier movies and always wish him the best..I sound like a High School girl :-)..but he & his wife worked Damn hard to get to where they are..because he’s not a great actor like “island boy”Johnny Depp..but he has that essence of being “honest” on believe whatever he’s doing..IF we all can get past Bruce Willis, Channing is not even second but a fabulous replacement…..see Channing’s earlier movies only for the fact when he dances, it’s amazing and THAT body..WOOF!….but if filming ,he’s the kind of body, that looks at food and gains 20 pounds…BUT NOT if you have money for a personal trainer,chef and what a friggin beautiful wife he has now…so HAPPY for the two of them..

    I don’t go GAGA over people because I’ve had friends in that business and it’s the few ,like these two, that I make a take NOTICE!
