GLAAD to meet you

Annual kudos celebrates positive images in H'wood

WHAT: The Los Angeles portion of the 17th annual GLAAD Awards Saturday, feting positive gay images in media over the past year.

WHERE: The Kodak Theater

FULL CIRCLE: A special honor for Charlize Theron — the Vanguard Award for her outspoken support of gay rights and for her perf as a lesbian in “Monster” — brought her back to the same Kodak stage where she won her actress Oscar for the Aileen Wuornos biopic. Another reason GLAAD handed Theron the nod: She has said she and b.f. Stuart Townsend won’t tie the knot until it’s legal for gays and lesbians to do the same.

POP GOES THE QUESTION: In addition to standing ovations for Theron and lifetime achievement honoree Melissa Etheridge, the capacity crowd also stood up in support of love. Upon accepting the award for docu “TransGeneration,” female-to-male subject T.J. Jourian popped the question to his girlfriend Staci Gunner in the audience, who then made it to the stage to say, “Yes!”
