Bill Clinton inspired some dour looks Saturday when he was awarded the first-ever "Advocate for Change Award" at the GLAAD Media Awards, which honors "inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community."
Some fans were perturbed because it was under the Clinton administration that came the Defense of Marriage Act - which bars federal recognition of same-sex marriage - and the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.
Mary Steenburgen defended Clinton. "Actually, ["don't ask, don't tell"] was a sorrow for him," she said. "I tell you this: He's never not had his heart in the right place, in terms of the gay community."
