Connor Franta looks all spiffy in his bowtie while arriving at the 2016 GLSEN Respect Awards held at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel on Friday night (October 21) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The social star and activist was honored at the event, which he presented at the previous year.
“Connor Franta has carried the message of respect to millions of young people online, and his authentic self-expression is the type that we envision for all of the youth we serve,” GLSEN executive director Eliza Byard said in a statement.
The 29-year-old Baby Daddy actor was hoping to take home a surfboard tonight for the show. It was up for Choice TV: Liplock (him and Chelsea), Choice TV: Scene Stealer (Tahj Mowry), Choice Summer TV Show, and Choice Summer TV Star: Male (Jean-Luc Bilodeau).
“So cool being nominated for 2 Teen Choice Awards. Too bad we didn’t bring home the surfboard!” Derek wrote from Instagram.
Longtime couple Audrey Whitby and Joey Bragg are also pictured below.
Funds were raised through a popular raffle and silent auction at the event for Parkinson’s Disease research.
“We’re blessed with so much experience and privilege,” Josh shared at the event. “When you’re a public figure, and you’re afforded this voice, you have a responsibility to give back in any what that you can.”

The on-screen couple reunited during the episode after breaking up during the mid-season finale on the show. During the mid-season finale earlier this year, Riley had found out that Danny had slept with Sam (Daniella Monet) and gave him back his “Someday” necklace, which he gave to her at the start of the season.
“Oh yeah! #Diley is alive and well! #BabyDaddyChat,” Chelsea tweeted during the episode, after a fan asked about that necklace.
