He has written a best-selling novel as well as articles for Newsweek, Harper’s BAZAAR and Out Magazine. Alan has also recorded an album of songs and released two signature fragrances. He supports many charities including Broadway Cares / Equity Fights Aids, GLAAD, and amfAR and his activism and passion for charitable causes have earned him humanitarian awards from the LGBT Task Force, The Human Rights Campaign, The Trevor Project, Lambda Legal, and an OBE from Buckingham Palace for his work on behalf of LGBT rights. Of his association with Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation, Alan says, “There is a common misconception that cancer is something that happens when you’re older. It doesn’t. It can happen any time, and it can happen when you’re young and beautiful and have everything to live for, just like it happened to Gabrielle. I am involved with Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation because I want to make young people aware of that and get them involved in the fight to find cures and to help those who suffer. And I want to honor Gabrielle’s memory and the amazing work her mother Denise does to make the word a better place.” For more info, visit alancumming.com.
