PHOTOS: Andrew Rannells Celebrates Model Behavior Backstage At Jeffrey Fashion Cares

by john russell April 05, 2016


“I walked backstage and there’s some real aliens back there walking around like models,” host Andrew Rannells joked at this year’s Jeffrey Fashion Cares. “I feel like Sloth from Goonies.”

But Jeffrey Kalinsky’s fashion fundraiser didn’t take over New York’s Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum to make Tony nominees and mere mortals alike feel bad about their looks. The annual fashion show and auction has raised over $11 million for organizations serving LGBT youth and people living with HIV/AIDS over the past 22 years. Fabulous and fashionable boldface names like Joel Grey, Transparent’s Hari Nef, trans model Andreja Pejic, activist Omar Sharif Jr., celebrity stylist Zaldy, New York party doyenne Susanne Bartsch, designer Thom Browne, and Real Housewife LuAnn de Lesseps gathered in the decommissioned battleship’s hanger to raise funds for ACRIA, the Hetrick-Martin Institute, and Lambda Legal and to honor activist Peter Staley.

Check out photos from the runway as well as shots of the show’s gorgeous male models living it up backstage.

by Graham Gremore October 21, 2016

Alabama. The Heart of Dixie. Epicenter of the Civil Rights Movement. Breeding ground of the KKK. Home of the Crimson Tide and antigay Governor Robert Bentley, who, as you may recall, had his adulterous phone sex recording leak earlier this year. Historically, the state has never been particularly good at advancing with the times. And it doesn’t appear to be getting any better [...]

6 Homophobes Standing By Donald Trump Despite That Little Sex Assault Problem

by JohnGallagher October 21, 2016

In light of the long line of women coming forward to dispute Donald Trump’s claim that he never sexually assaulted anyone, Trump lost a lot of support from key political figures, including Sen. John McCain and House Speaker Paul Ryan. But one group is standing shoulder to shoulder with Trump: religious right leaders. Yes, the [...]
