PFLAG to Give Liza Minnelli an Award

Citing her outstanding contributions as an artist to advancing equality for all, PFLAG National announced that Academy Award®-winning actress and iconic straight ally Liza Minnelli will be honored with the 2010 Straight for Equality in Entertainment award for her lifelong support of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people.

The award will be presented at PFLAGs second annual Straight for Equality Awards Gala on May 1 at the New York Marriott Marquis.

Liza Minnelli is the quintessential straight ally. She has been an outspoken supporter of equality for LGBT people for her whole life, and her tremendous and ongoing philanthropy in the fight against AIDS has made her a very public advocate of the many individuals and their families who have been affected by the disease, said Jody M. Huckaby, PFLAG Nationals executive director.

Her enormous talent makes her iconic, and her steadfast support for the LGBT community makes her an ally. We are so honored to be able to present her with the 2010 Straight for Equality in Entertainment Award.
