New York — GLAAD celebrates Orange Is the New Black.

George Takei received the Vito Russo award, presented to an openly gay media professional for promoting equality for the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

Other winners Saturday included the films Concussion and Philomena and Oprah Winfrey's interview with openly gay professional basketball player Jason Collins.
