Actor George Takei received the group's
Vito Russo award in recognition of his gay rights advocacy.
The film Concussion – which
tells the story of a bored lesbian housewife who turns to
prostitution – was named outstanding film in limited release, while
The Weinstein Company's Philomena won in the wide release
category. In the Oscar-nominated Philomena, a staunch
Catholic woman searches for the son she was forced to give up, who
turns out to be gay.
