Photos: Live Out Loud 11th Annual Gala

Alan Cumming, Emmy-nominated star of The Good Wife on CBS, was honored at Live Out Loud's Eleventh Annual Young Trailblazers Benefit Gala this year and was there!

Cumming was presented with the Star Award, given to individuals who have helped Live Out Loud empower LGBT youth. Cumming has used his prominence as a multitalented actor to benefit numerous LGBT and AIDS-related causes, hosted Live Out Loud's 9th Annual Gala in 2010 and
appeared in a Live Out Loud public service announcement produced by Showtime. The event will take place on Monday, April 30th at The TimesCenter in New York City and will be hosted by B.D. Wong, star of the new NBC series Awake.

"What we lack in the LGBT world is positive role models," said Alan Cumming. "Now, more than ever, if you're out and proud and strong, it's important to let our young Brothers and Sisters know that life is good and we are happy to be who we are. It's important to speak out and get your message to the kids who need it most. It's for all our good."

A highlight of this year's gala was the awarding of $5,000 scholarships to five high school seniors in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut who have demonstrated outstanding leadership skills within
their communities. Live Out Loud will also honor leaders who have supported the organization over the years and served as role models for LGBT youth. Other honorees include Deutsch / A Lowe & Partners Company, which received the inaugural Corporate Leadership Award, and Bruce
T. Sloane, who received the Founders Award.
