GLAAD's 9th Annual OUT Auction: Buzzing for Art

With a sold-out crowd buzzing like they were on a Four Loko binge, GLAAD's 9th annual OUT Auction, featuring GLAAD's Top 100 Artists, blanketed the Metropolitan Pavilion with art and celebrities such as The Fabulous Beekman Boys, David Bromstad, Amanda Lepore, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, Sheree Whitfield - and about 600 art mavens balancing Rokk Vodka cocktails in one hand while bidding up the work.

Host Jill Zarin, from Real Housewives of NYC, used her megaphone voice to stunning effect, silencing the crowd long enough to hear about GLAAD's role in increased LGBT media visibility. Meanwhile, the Rokk Vodka flowed from the bars like the Mississippi.

The 2010 OUT in Art Award went to David LaChapelle (currently celebrating his 20th year photographing downtown denizens and Hollywood stars), who was introduced by his dear friend and style muse, Daphne Guinness (who looked as stunning as her introduction was heartfelt). With an eloquent acceptance speech, LaChapelle emphasized the incremental progress of LGBT freedoms, and how much more remains to be done for LGBT youth.

By night's end, the prices on the art were as high as the crowd: another GLAAD success story.
