The evening was hosted by Project Runways' Tim Gunn.

The Hetrick-Martin Institute, Home of The Harvey Milk High School, "believes all young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity, deserve a safe and supportive environment in which to achieve their full potential. The Hetrick-Martin Institute creates this environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth between the ages of 12 and 21 and their families. In addition, through a comprehensive package of direct services and referrals, the Hetrick-Martin Institute seeks to foster healthy youth development. The Hetrick-Martin Institute's staff promotes excellence in the delivery of youth services and uses its expertise to create innovative programs that other organizations may use as models," according to a press article.
