GLSEN honors Bob and Harvey Weinstein

Pair to receive chairman's award for 'Bully'

The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) has announced that Bob and Harvey Weinstein will be presented with the Chairman’s Award at the GLSEN Respect Awards — Los Angeles, which recognizes individuals and companies for their work in supporting diversity. Ceremony will be held Oct. 5 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The award comes in light of the Weinsteins’ support and distribution of doc “Bully,” which received critical acclaim and public attention when the Weinsteins battled the MPAA to give the film a more distribution-friendly rating of PG-13 (instead of the initial R).

“We applaud Bob and Harvey for bringing the experiences of our nation’s youth to audiences nationwide, which has built a greater understanding for GLSEN’s work to create safe and respectful schools for all students,” said GLSEN executive director Eliza Byard.

The selection of the Weinsteins rounds out GLSEN’s slate of honorees, which also includes DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and his wife Marilyn Katzenberg (Lifetime Achievement Award); “White Collar” thesp Matt Bomer and his partner, respected publicist Simon Halls (Inspiration Award); and filmmakers Adam Fitzgerald and Blake Drummond (special recognition for a winning public service announcement) as well as a yet-unnamed “Student Advocate of the Year.”
