KIRK CAMERON got schooled by Tracey Gold at the GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday. Gold, who was a presenter at the LGBT organization’s Marriott Marquis event, told the crowd that her “Growing Pains” co-star “had spoken his mind” when he said earlier this month that homosexuality was “unnatural.” But she added, “I want my voice of love and support to be louder. There’s nothing wrong with being gay.”
Gold’s mention of Cameron’s name brought a raucous round of boos, but her own remarks brought cheers and a verbal thumbs-up from her co-presenter, fashionista Carson Kressley. ”Go, Tracey!” he said, adding: “Just for the record, I don’t like Kirk Cameron’s hair!”
The liveliest part of the night belonged to GLAAD Awards co-hosts and “Glee” stars Cory Monteith and Naya Rivera. They each auctioned off a kiss to the highest bidder. “I’ve got my Chapstick and I’m ready to party,” said Monteith to wolf whistles, but the predominantly gay crowd went wild when actor John Stamos, who was sitting the audience, bid $3,500 to kiss Monteith.
Though his bid would be beat, Stamos ended up jumping onstage to auction off his own kiss. Three men won the bidding, each paying $5,000 for their respective kisses. The guy who’d won a crack at Monteith’s well-moisturized lips got cold feet, however, and sent “Smash” star Megan Hilty onstage to plant a big wet one in his stead.
Stamos later returned to help present the Vito Russo Award to “Smash” producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, and told the crowd that the duo “cast me in my first gay role: Uncle Jesse [in 'Full House'].” Added Stamos: “Come on, three men living in San Francisco raising three kids? Hello!”
