  1. I’m proud of Clay as well for doing this…He is a friend of Tyra, and I love the “Alliance against Defamation” cause I don’t know of anyone who has been knocked down more than Clay.
    and He is standing up so that others won’t have to go through the hardship. GOD…I LOVE THIS MAN!!!!!!


  2. I think this is a prestigious event for Clay to be included. I’m sure he is intereted in promoting rights for GLAAD.

  3. It is very nice to see that he will be there personally to give this award to his good friend, Tyra Banks. We need more inclusion in this matter..and if anyone knows about is Clay.

  4. I am so proud that Clay is going to be a presenter at the GLAAD awards. He truly is for inclusion for everyone in everything. I am also so happy he will be giving the award to Tyra because they are close friends and because Tyra has long been inclusive in her shows for the lesbian/gay community.
