NewNowNext Awards co-hosts Candis Cayne and Colman Domingo

 

Last night in NYC Logo held a big shindig taping of the on-air portion of its first ever NewNowNext Awards. It was major. And really gay! (duh…)

Candis Cayne and Colman Domingo (of Logo’s Big Gay Sketch Show genius-ness) co-hosted, and bucketloads of queer and queer-loving talent was on hand: Leona Lewis (gorgeous!), Cyndi Lauper, Christian Siriano, Wilson Cruz, Caroline Rhea, some women from The L Word, musicians like Lady Gaga, Dangerous Muse, Cazwell, the men of Noah’s Arc … and the Dazzle Dancers and the Planet Unicorn crew!

So as to not keep you in suspense, Logo’s releasing all the winners of the prizes (which is a big, heavy-looking glass "N" called the "Nexty") today. The full list is after the jump and includes folks as varied as Tina Fey, the trans-led band The Cliks, the aforementioned Leona Lewis, Candis Cayne and more!!!
