Ricky Martin, Russell Simmons recognized at GLAAD Awards

Ricky Martin, Russell Simmons, True Blood's Denis O'Hare and Patrick Wilson were a handful of stars recognized for their contributions to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered community at the GLAAD Media Awards Saturday in New York.

Hosted by Bravo exec Andy Cohen, the ceremony was designed to award "fair, accurate and inclusive representations" of LGBTs.

"I just want to be free. I can say today I'm free," Martin said after earning the Vito Russo Award for outstanding contributions toward eliminating homophobia.

"And for that I definitely need to thank my parents for being so supportive, my mother and my dad for their unconditional love, and my friends, my family, my fans. And my partner in crime and my boyfriend Carlos."
