VIDEO: Stars Talk at Jeffrey Fashion Cares


Celebrities, socialites, and activists came out to support Jeffrey Fashion Cares in New York on the USS Intrepid. The primary focus of the fashion-fueled fundraising event is to raise money for The Hetrick-Martin Institute, Lambda Legal, Gay Men’s Health Crisis, and the Point Foundation.  In typical JFC fashion, the evening was a huge success raising over $650,000 and providing a fabulous night of fashion-for-a-cause for 1,100 attendees.

On the red carpet, celebrities and fashionistas spoke with dot429’s R. Couri Hay about gay activism, gay marriage, coming out of the closet, and the importance of supporting Jeffrey Fashion Cares.  Mike Ruiz shares exclusive information about the difficulty LOGO is facing trying to cast A-List in Dallas and Los Angeles, and even asks Hollywood powerhouse David Geffen to join the show!
