Jennifer Lopez Given a GLAAD Award

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Defamation (GLAAD) held its 25th annual awards ceremony recently. Among those attending the function were Jennifer Lopez and Laverne Cox. The former needs no introduction while the latter is the transgender star of Orange is the New Black. 

Others who were present included Naomi Campbell, Chaz Bono and Lupita Nyong’o. The head of the convention for alternative sexuality spoke of how it was a whole new world for them. 

The actress Ellen Page was in the crowd and said that she came out about her sexuality on Valentines Day.

Laverne Cox meanwhile was given a bouquet onstage by her own mother. Cox mentioned the fact that she was a Black American transgender female from the lower class. And she said that usually such a background was not very fertile ground for accepting a GLAAD award. Yet the fact that she had received an award showed that things were improving. 

Lopez once was a gangster’s moll. The gangster was none other than Puff Diddy. However, the friendship cost her quite a lot. The law came in and Lopez was almost arrested. And Cox has acted in VH1’s I Want to Work for Diddy. 

According to Cox, she and Lopez probably wanted to forget certain things that occurred in relation to Diddy. Jennifer mentioned that she had an aunt that was a lesbian who inspired her to become a performing artist. 

She spoke of how this aunt named Marisa was so cool yet had to hide her feelings due to the temper of the times in which she lived. Back then the Zeitgeist was not conducive to coming out of the closet. 

Therefore, Jennifer Lopez has been supporting the LGBT cause since the beginning of her career. Finally, one of the members of GLAAD said that although he was gay there was always room for Jennifer Lopez.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
