Family Equality Council Honors NBC Network, Minnesota Vikings Punter Chris Kluwe and Project 10 Founder Virginia Uribe for Support of Family Equality


The Family Equality Council will hold its 9th annual Los Angeles Awards Dinner on Saturday, February 9, at the Globe Theatre at Universal Studios Hollywood to honor NBC Network, Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe, and Project 10 founder Virginia Uribe for their support and efforts to advance equality for all families. Attendees at the event as well as online bidders will have a chance to win a trip for six to Disneyland with Glee actress Jane Lynch and her family at a live auction to be held at the event.

Presenters for the evening include Sean Hayes, star of NBC’s long-running hit Will & Grace; Andrew Rannells of NBC’s new hit show The New Normal; Darren Criss, star of Fox’s Glee; and comedian and actress Molly Shannon.

NBC Chairman Bob Greenblat will accept the award for NBC Network, which is being honored for their consistent and positive representation of parents who are LGBT in primetime television. From Friends and Will & Grace to The New Normal and Go On, for two decades NBC has been responsible for groundbreaking portrayals of LGBT parents and in doing so has helped to shape a new paradigm for the American family.

Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is being honored for his role as a vocal advocate against the law that would have banned same-sex marriage in Minnesota. Kluwe is well known for a colorful letter he wrote to Maryland Delegate, Emmet C. Burns on the issue of marriage equality and for his work with Minnesotans United for All Families.

Virginia Uribe, the founder of Project 10, and Friends of Project 10 is being honored for her work creating an environment for students who are LGBT that is supportive, loving, and nurturing. Uribe helped to create such programs as the annual LGBTQ Youth Prom, which create a safe space where children and teens can feel free to express themselves and feel the support of their community. She has helped show students who are LGBT the world of acceptance so that they may grow into strong, self-assured adults and parents.

The premier West Coast event includes a cocktail reception and dinner preceding the awards presentation. The Family Equality Council awards were created to honor stars in the worlds of arts, entertainment, politics, and LGBT activism who advance equality for LGBT-headed families and all families.
