By Charlotte Robinson, August 12, 2014
GLAAD the nation's LGBT media advocacy organization announced that Kris Perry & Sandy Stier, lead plaintiffs in the landmark Prop 8 case will receive the Presidential Local Hero Award at the GLAAD Gala San Francisco: Game Changers at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square on September 13th. Sarah Kate Ellis GLAAD President & CEO stated, “Kris & Sandy's courage & leadership have now touched the lives of countless loving & committed couples across California & beyond its borders, drawing us closer than ever before to full marriage equality in the United States.” GLAAD will also be honoring global technology leader Google & video-sharing innovator YouTube. GLAAD Gala San Francisco: Game Changers recognizes national & Bay Area leaders advancing LGBT equality through the media & also funds GLAAD's national advocacy work to rewrite the script for LGBT equality. The event will be hosted by ‘Orange is the New Black’ star Taryn Manning & will feature a special performance by ‘Glee’ star Alex Newell. Special guests include Meghan McCain, Peter Paige & more. GLAAD GALA San Francisco is presented nationally by Ketel One Vodka, Wells Fargo & Hilton Worldwide. The event is also underwritten by Barefoot Wine & Bubbly & presented locally by Southwest Airline. If you haven’t seen HBO’s new documentary THE CASE AGAINST 8 that is currently on the cable network we suggest you do. In this exclusive audio interview I chatted with plaintiffs Kris Perry & Sandy Stier who talked about their experience being filmed for five years leading up to the Supreme Court decision that found Prop 8 unconstitutional & about what affect the experience had on their family.
