The GLAAD National Board of Directors, President Herndon Graddick, Event Co-Chairs Christian Hagedorn and James Kleeman, and the Planning Committee invite you to GLAAD Art Auction, formerly known as OUTAuction. This year’s event will be cu
rated by Daneyal Mahmood. Celebrate major victories for marraige equality in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington while supporting GLAAD. 

From standing up for Ellen DeGeneres when anti-gay activists called for her to be fired, to working alongside an Ohio mom to get the Boy Scouts to end its policy banning gay scouts and scout leaders, GLAAD is sharing the stories that move us closer to equality.

The event will be hosted by Sam Champion, Good Morning America weather anchor and ABC News weather editor, and his fiancée, fine-arts and fashion photographer Rubem Robierb.
