On April 14th, Jennifer Aniston will be presented the Vanguard Award, the highest accolade given by The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
The award, to be presented at the 18th annual GLAAD Media Awards, comes to the actress after her much-talked about on-screen kiss with Courteney Cox in the season finale of Dirt, the defunct drama both starring and executive produced by Cox.
I am sure the kiss—which drew over 2.4 million viewers—had everything to do with Aniston’s dedication to a fair depiction of gays and lesbians in the media, and nothing at all to do with snatching some ratings for the offensively awful drama, or the re-positioning of Aniston as a sex symbol while her ex-hubby is off playing house with the most smoldering woman alive.
I thought two hot girls pretending to be lesbians to garner some attention was defamation against the gay community? But what do I know.
Final Word: And to think, J. Lo has been dancing her little heart out at the Gay Pride Parade for all these years. Some girls have all the luck.
