We told you earlier that Facebook had won a coveted GLAAD Media Award for its significant, long-term work with and for the LGBT community. We told you that the awards show would be a Cirque du Soleil-meets-Glee-meets-Beverly McClellan, star-studded orgy for the senses.

So natch, we just had to go there and snap a few pics to show you.

Glee’s Diana Agron (pictured above) acted as MC for the evening. Accepting Facebook’s award were Facebookers Andrew Noyes and Sara Sperling, who drove the creation of the Network of Support, a ring of LGBT organizations that consult Facebook on how best to protect and help the queer community within the confines of the social network.

Also of interest to you webizens, Huffington Post took home a GLAAD Media Award for writer Max J. Rosenthal’s heartwarming post, Adam and Pete: Love in a Time of War, a true story about two men who met at West Point and were married just days after the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. (Side note: HuffPo also took home the blogosphere’s first-ever Pulitzer Prize a couple months ago.)

Without further ado, here are the pics we gathered at Saturday’s star-studded fete:
