Taryn Manning and Zachary Quinto Celebrate Pride Week with Kiehl’s & HMI

Last night, legendary apothecary Kiehl’s celebrated New York City LGBT Pride by throwing a celeb-laden bash in their flagship store. The evening culminated with Kiehl’s president Chris Salgardo making a donation to The Hetrick-Martin Institute, a charity which provides a safe and supportive environment to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender teens and young adults.

Zachary Quinto and Taryn Manning hosted the fete, where we also spotted Brooklyn Nets player Jason Collins, photographer Mike Ruiz, model Amanda Norgaard, and celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch in the enthusiastic crowd.

Quinto seemed particularly moved by the evening. “I love the work you guys do and I’ve been a supporter for a long time,” the Star Trek and American Horror Story actor said. “I encourage everybody to figure out the way that they can to contribute to this organization that really changes so many lives for the better.”

Manning, who is currently filming Season 3 of Orange Is the New Black, pulled double-duty at the party as co-host and DJ! “I’m excited to be here,” she told InStyle.com between sets featuring pulsing remixes from Beyoncé and Michael Jackson. “I’m doing San Francisco Pride [next]!”

The actress hinted at some major character developments in OITNB‘s next season. “I think we have a lot in store for every single character,” Manning said. “Ones that you may have loved, you might be like ‘ohh!’ and ones that you might not have loved, you might start to like. Because that’s life.”
