Jill wants everyone to be accepted for who they are! The hate in this world HAS TO stop!

The Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin continues the fight against anti-bullying and defamation! On Nov. 22, the reality star hosted the GLAAD OUT Auction in NYC to help raise awareness along with her housewife co-stars Kelly Bensimon, Ramona Singer, Alex McCord and Cindy Barshop.

“I’m so excited to work with GLAAD to help plan this event and raise funds for their work to combat bullying and grow acceptance of gay people,” Jill told HollywoodLife.com. “The way we view others is largely shaped by media images we see every day, so I’m thrilled to support GLAAD to make sure these images build understanding and support.”

Jill’s co-star Kelly completely agreed. “This event means a lot of things to me on many different levels,” Kelly shared. “But the most important thing is I’m here to support my friend Jill Zarin and the art world and to combat one of the most serious issues of today.”

Co-star Ramona added: “I just believe everyone should be treated equally, whether it’s their gender, race, or sexual preference!”
