On Saturday night in New York City, GLAAD handed out trophies to famous persons making gay rights a personal cause célèbre (Cynthia Nixon, Joy Behar) and folks like Sigourney Weaver, because she was not nominated for her role in Avatar (oh, and because of her work in Prayers for Bobby, which is excellent). Queerty had Ben Harvey and Dave Rubin of Ben & Dave’s Six Pack hit the red carpet looking for inspiring tales (see: Weaver) and answers to pressing questions. They weren’t disappointed.
We’ll be bringing you more from the red carpet throughout the day, but up first is Ugly Betty‘s Michael Urie, currently starring in The Temperamentals, who continues refusing to acknowledge he’s a homosexual. Which is fine, because then we get cute soundbites like this one.
But it also means he’s subjecting us to this lengthy diatribe about, um, we’re not sure actually. Something about how celebs coming out is like a stench filling the room?

Oh, and here’s Scott Evans dishing on gay dodgeball, of which is he the star?
