Watch now! GLAAD Media Awards speeches by Ellen Page, Laverne Cox, Jennifer Lopez, Lupita Nyong’o, and more!

Newly out actress Ellen Page presented Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox with the Stephen F. Kolzak Award, at the 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles this weekend. The Award is presented to an LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) media professional who has made a significant difference in moving equality forward, and Cox’s mom made a surprise appearance on stage. Cox said, ”I’m so moved by the work that GLAAD has been doing, particularly over the past year, to make sure that the ‘T’ is not silent in the LGBT community. For years, I was trying to have a career as an actor doing what I love to do most and was told repeatedly that they didn’t know what to do with me, and that I would not work.”

"I think Cosima and Delphine have that amazing complexity to their relationship, which is total love for each other. Yet they’re also on opposite ends of the equation and sort of like Romeo and Juliet, from totally different worlds. The trust issues remain issues, and there remains tension between them, but ultimately they love each other."

Red Carpet Interviews from the GLAAD Awards: Tatiana Maslany, Laverne Cox, Caitlin Stasey, The Fosters, and more!

Tatiana Maslany: I think Cosima and Delphine have that amazing complexity to their relationship, which is total love for each other. Yet they’re also on opposite ends of the equation and sort of like Romeo and Juliet, from totally different worlds. The trust issues remain issues, and there remains tension between them, but ultimately they love each other.

Laverne Cox: I haven’t met Ellen Page, yet, in person. I’m so honored that she said “yes” to introducing me, and I was deeply honored when she mentioned me in her coming out speech. I’ve been a huge fan of Ellen Page for a long time, so this whole night is kind of unbelievable for me. I feel very special, and I believe that if all trans women of color got this kind of love, we could change the world.

Caitlin Stasey: Playing a gay character really isn’t anything to me. I have a fluid sexuality and feel like everyone’s on a scale... I don’t really discern a difference between attraction for men or women.

GLAAD MEDIA AWARDS

Heading to the 25th Annual GLAAD Media Awards to see Ellen Page present an award to Laverne Cox. Wish me luck. I’m not nervous at all. So calm. Hella zen. Totally chill.


I’m very happy to be here tonight for GLAAD. Of course, GLAAD is an acronym for “Gays and Lesbians Who Couldn’t Get Tickets For Coachella.”
I heard that Betty White is here. Betty White is here. [to Betty] I didn’t know you were gay. Welcome, Sister. That’s wonderful.
This is the largest award show honoring LGBT people in the media except for the Oscars, the Tonys and the Emmys. I think all of us being here tonight proves one thing — it proves that it’s possible to have a gay awards show not hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.
