We are thrilled that this year we will have the opportunity to do so at our largest event of the year. Kristin truly proves that to be a person of faith & an ally to the LGBTQ community do not have to be mutually exclusive." Kristin Chenoweth stated, “I am truly honored to be recognized by PFLAG National, an organization that has spent over 40 years on the frontlines working with people who are LGBTQ, their families & allies. I speak out as an ally because it’s my truth, it’s what’s in my heart. And, with all of the negativity out in the world, I think it’s especially important for LGBTQ youth to hear people of strong faith supporting them; I’m proud to be one of them.” Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry & Wells Fargo will also be honored at the 8th Annual Straight for Equality Awards Gala.
