LA Blade - The quietest shift happened at the Human Rights Campaign gala in Los Angeles last weekend. The stage was populated with more women, trans women and people of color than rich white gay men. And it was so normal, it went unnoticed.

In fact, after champion skater Adam Rippon opened the show announcing that unfortunately singer Christina Aguilera was unable to attend to accept her Ally for Equality Award, formidable trans singer Shea Diamond came out, joking she’d dressed to impress the music icon, and launched into “American Pie” with such style and power no one was thinking of Aguilera five minutes later.
