NLGJA: Headlines and Headliners

A room full of gay writer/editor/blogger types, media celebrities and an open bar? Yeah, I'm in heaven. I've said it before but I'll say it again: if you're a gay journalist then you need to check out the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association. The name may not exactly roll off the tongue, but it's a great way to make industry contacts -- and if you're not careful, you might make some great friends too. Thanks to everybody who made the night so special.

With Matt Lauer
With Meredith Vieira
Charity mustache rides: With Geraldo Rivera

    That was cool of Geraldo Rivera to show up. He's an incredibly conceited guy, but basically a good one.

    Jeanne Moos! I love it!

    This looks like a fun time. But I AM surprised Matt Lauer was there. He has made some pointedly homophobic comments on his show over the years (the reason I no longer watch).

    Let's see who in this set of pics endes up being discovered on Manhunt.

    All those celebs are nice, but who is the handsome guy with the yellow tie? He pulls off that tie quite nicely.

    I'm not implying anything, but was Anderson Cooper present?

    Joey said...

    P.S. : I'm glad your eye is better, but that yellow tie really would have looked awesome with a black eye patch.
