Openly gay MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts appeared as a presenter Tuesday night in New York City at the 2011 Amplifier Awards of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD). That's the group that wants all "anti-gay" voices censored from newscasts, an agenda Roberts obviously doesn't mind endorsing.
Broadway World reports Roberts presented Allstate with the Corporate Responsibility award for its long-standing public commitment to the LGBT community. Allstate Marketing Director Georgina Flores accepted the award and said that it was "...for all the LGBT Allstate Agents and their LGBT customers."
The Amplifier Awards "celebrated and honored those individuals and campaigns in advertising and marketing industries that presented fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the LGBT community and issues that affect the lives of LGBT people." The award for Outstanding TV Campaign in a Mainstream Market went to Google Chrome's "It Gets Better" ad (the one that included Woody from "Toy Story" supporting the LGBT agenda.)
Three stars of NBCU's Bravo channel also appeared: Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer of Real Housewives of New York City and Tabatha Coffey of Tabatha's Salon Take Over.
This isn't the first time MSNBC's been thrilled about GLAAD awards.
