GLAAD Media Awards

Bill Clinton Credits Chelsea

Former president Bill Clinton paid tribute to equal rights for gays and lesbians at the 24th GLAAD awards in Los Angels Saturday night, attributing his political turnaround to his daughter. "Chelsea and her gay friends have modeled to me how we should all treat each other regardless of our sexual orientation," Clinton said, adding, "She has had a profound impact on the way I see the world." NBC's sitcom The New Normal, FX's thriller American Horror Story: Asylum, and NBC's daytime drama Days of Our Lives took home top honors. Clinton was honored with the Advocate for Change Award at the event, which was hosted by Drew Barrymore. Harvey Weinstein and Jennifer Lawrence were on hand to present the award to the President. Leonardo DiCaprio and Charlize Theron presented the Stephen F. Kolzak Award to entertainment lawyer Steve Warren.
