Beverly Hills was the place to be Friday night as GLSEN handed out their awards and paid tribute to the people and companies doing their part to advance the gay and lesbian characters we see in the media.

Grey’s Anatomy & Private Practice creator/EP, Shondra Rhimes, philanthropist and technology entrepreneur, David Bohnett as well as HBO were the recipients of this year’s Respect Awards.

Everyone in attendance from Dancing with the Stars, stars to HBO’s talent and executive pool, was proud to be there to support their bosses and colleagues for their contributions, but they were even more pleased to demonstrate their own commitment to equality.
