Joan Rivers, Charles Busch

New York April 30, 2013: Live Out Loud honored trailblazing individuals, who just happen to be incredible role models for the LGBT youth, at The 12th Annual Young Trailblazers Gala hosted by Jordan Roth, President of the Jujamcyn Theaters, at the Time Warner Center on 41st Street. The unique individuals recognized for their outstanding achievements before a standing room only audience were David France, the director of the film "How to Survive a Plague," Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, US representative-NY18, and theatrical legend actor/playwright Charles Busch. However the highlight of the evening for many was the sight of comedian Joan Rivers, who made a special appearance to present Charles Busch with his award.
