Emery Awards Red Carpet and Apres Party, November 9th, Cipriani Wall Street, 11.9.10
The Hetrick Martin Institute, a non profit that serves the needs of LGBT youth, held its annual Emery Awards fundraiser at Cipriani Wall Street on Tuesday, Nov. 9. Hetrick Martin is home of the Harvey Milk School and provides after school programs and other support services to LGBT youth.
Here are a few of the celebs who strolled down the red carpet.
Matthew Morrison from the cast of Glee
Michelle Clunie from Queer As Folk
Media rock star Arianna Huffington
Derek Lloyd “Prettiest Girl in the Room” Saathoff of The A List: NY, in all his spray tanned glory
As with most fundraisers, the dinner and awards portion of the night was noticeably lesbian-sparse. It looked like a bourgeois penguin convention, but the ladies arrived fashionably late to the after party held on the mezzanine of Cipriani.
Lookin’ good, ladies.
