On Saturday, the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center celebrated its 40th anniversary at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel, where Glee star Jane Lynch gushed over honorees Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka—calling them “gorgeous, easy on the eyes, handsome…and gorgeous,” and admitted that “it doesn’t hurt that their babies are cuter than Brangelina’s.”
Things got little more serious though, when she thanked the guys, who took home the Rand Schrader Distinguished Achievement Award, for showing the world what our gay families really look like.
Neil accepted the award tongue firmly in cheek, while David acted as the serious straight man (kind of). “We are not some sort of freakshow or a government experiment gone awry,” Burtka said. “What really matters is the greater community that surrounds our children,” Neil added. “The supporting cast of people…extended family, teachers, neighbors, image consultants, bodyguards, Barry’s Bootcamp for Toddlers instructors.”
Other honorees included Chaz Bono, who was presented with the Board of Directors Award. The gala was hosted by Leslie Jordan. David Arquette, Bono’s Dancing with the Stars partner Karina Smirnoff, Dita Von Teese, drag queen Coco Peru, Meredith Baxter, and Sara Gilbert were also in attendance.
