BEV­ERLY HILTON HO­TEL, BEV­ERLY HILLS, SEPT. 22

Hosted by Kelly Ripa and Mark Con­sue­los, the 49th an­nual ben­e­fit for the Los An­ge­les LGBT Cen­ter hon­ored Ricky Martin, Greg Ber­lanti and Rob­bie Rogers and phi­lan­thropist Ari­adne Getty. “The in­spi­ra­tion [to be­come an ad­vo­cate] comes from my kids be­cause when I held them for the first time in my arms, I said, ‘I can­not teach you to lie,’” Martin said about com­ing out as gay. “I have to be hon­est.” And then in a sweet shout-out to his artist hus­band Jwan Yosef, the “Livin’ la Vida Loca” singer ex­claimed, “I love you so much. … Let’s keep hav­ing ba­bies!”
