“The place is beautiful. No Clay yet, but I got a picture of the life sized Clay poster!!” from mustbeme at 6:28

bigappleforclay: He just walked in wearing gray jacket with black velvet collar… white shirt and glasses. He was by himself, walking with a hostess. (or at least she doesn’t see anyone else yet) Jerome is there also. Kind of reddish spikey hair.

The council board members all had their pictures taken with Clay…….from mustbeme at 6:49

Jess just called. She said it is VERY crowded.

The press are there – TV cameras!!!!

Also the life sized posted on auction is from the front of the Schubert – $1,000 opening bid.

He just walked in. He was interviewed out in the hallway before he came in. He looks so good!! Mustbeme at 7:35pm

Part of Terry Boggis’ speech:

I believe she’s talking about the White House Easter egg hunt?
But she talked about the way the children’s faces fell when one woman went on a rant about the same sex families who were there.

She said as much progress as we have, this is what makes her do the work she does.
That she never wants to see that look on a child’s face.



Clay is talking so much, I don’t know how he can eat ……..from mustbeme at 8:55pm

His award should be soon looks like they are saving him for last from mustbeme at9:04pm


Clay is talking to B.D. Wong the actor.

It was just announced that they surpassed the matching donations…more than $100,000 was donated from people in the room in the room.


This was part of the introduction via the OFC:

great privilege and honor to introduce the next honoree…platinum recording artist, NYT best selling artist, touring…

all incredible things…we are honoring him….he was a special education teacher…undying commitment to children…shown time and time again…TBAF and UNICEf….reason for honoring…2008…became a father…and he did the most important thing that any GLBT can do, he told the truth about he was, he showed his son to live a life that is proud and truthful is the only way to live…and for that is why we are honoring him…


Clay’s being introduced!

Really nice applause — and MUCH screaming.

I think he just made a joke about it.

He’s saying he doesn’t really belong there because he doesn’t “do the hard work.” “I’ve only been doing it for 8 1/2 months. The most important work is being done by people in this room who’ve been doing it for years.”

He said he didn’t write anything down.

Equating the gay rights movement with the civil rights movements. Just as white people joined the movement to work alongside blacks for civil rights, heterosexuals are beginning to stand with those fighting for gay rights.
