Over my 11 years at Us Weekly, I regularly conducted and co-produced exclusive Live Events for key clients and staffers. Stand-outs: The “Glee” cast, Rob Lowe, Matt Bomer, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, Caitlyn (then Bruce) Jenner, Joe Manganiello, Joan and Melissa Rivers, Pam Anderson, the “American Idol” winners and runners-up (annual), Snooki and the “Jersey Shore” cast, Denise Richards, Paula Abdul, Kendra Wilkinson, Luke Perry, NKOTB, Andy Cohen, Bethenny Frankel and nearly every Bravo TV “Real Housewives” cast member. A few memories in this slideshow:
LGBT-oriented interviews hosted in front of audiences:
• Conducted Q&A with marriage equality icon Jim Obergefell just hours after the Orlando tragedy
• Conducted Q&A with controversial Vanity Fair writer/memoirist Kevin Sessums about about his descent into meth addiction.
Speeches I wrote for LGBT events:
• A speech summarizing Family Equality Council’s work, delivered by the board chair of Family Equality Council at the L.A. Impact Awards. Here’s the video.
• A speech summarizing Family Equality Council’s work, delivered by the board chair of Family Equality Council at the New York Night at the Pier. Here’s the video.
