Sam Champion, Josh Elliott, and Lara Spencer of ABC’s Good Morning America hosted the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City.

 

The evening honored the best in LGBT media, and those moving equality forward including Anderson Cooper, who received the Vito Russo Award from pop icon Madonna. Cooper said during his speech that he was “Blessed for being Gay” and Thanked his partner.
