It's an appropriate coincidence that the 2014 Tony Awards took place during Pride month because the entire show felt like a celebration for the LGBT community.
Hugh Jackman was charming (and had some great jokes as an LGBT ally,) Neil Patrick Harris doled out lap dances to male celebrities before kissing his husband as Hedwig, and Alan Cumming showcased his sexual prowess and his nipples as the Emcee from Cabaret. When you throw in RuPaul and anything Idina Menzel does, the gay Super Bowl has never felt more epic.
The other show of the night was on Twitter, where comedians could barely contain their excitement. Here are the best tweets from last night's #TonyAwards.

I'm nervous about celebrating LA gay pride and the Tonys in the same day. Worried homosexuality will be canceled for the rest of the month.
