When the event's host, Kathy Griffin, was asked about her thoughts on the lesbian community while walking the red carpet, she mentioned that even though they are "tough to make laugh," she "freaking loves [her] lesbians" and is even still holding out for a lesbian president.
"You know I've been saying President Orman for quite awhile. I love my Barack Obama, but I'm saying President Suze Orman would be a very good move," said Griffin, who added that a lesbian in the White House would "be a dream."
An Evening With Women is an annual fundraiser that raises money for the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center, which provides shelter, food, clothing, and medication for gay homeless youth in the Los Angeles area. Last year's event, which included performances by Courtney Love, Aimee Mann, and Linda Perry, brought in over $450,000. This year Ozzy Osbourne (who reunited with his wife, Sharon at the event), Natasha Bedingfield, and Sia performed, while Griffin hosted.
