LGBT supporters gathered last weekend to celebrate the Point Foundation's 10th anniversary at Jim Henson Studios in West Hollywood and raised nearly $300,000 for the group.
The Point Foundation, founded by Bruce Lindstrom and Carl Strickland in 2001, offers financial support and guidance to LGBT undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students who have been marginalized because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Over the past 10 years, Point has given over $12 million in college scholarships.
Celebrities such as John Michael Higgins, Anna Paquin, Busy Philipps, Sara Rue, and Joel McHale turned up to commemorate the occasion. Check out the following pages for some fun interviews with a few of the celebrity presenters.
