But before the big celebration took place, the folks over at Kiehl's and the Men's Sexual Health Project, threw a party on Saturday in support of the gay community. Kiehl's president, Chris Salagardo and Dr. Demetre Daskalakis hosted the event where attendees included actor Alan Cumming, fashion designer Richie Rich, and scene kids/DJ trio The MisShapes

The Men's Sexual Health Project offers gay males free and confidential testing for HIV and sexually transmitted diseases at the East Side and West Side Clubs. The program is a combined effort of Bellvue Hospital and NYU's School of Medicine.
