By Charlotte Robinson, September 22, 2017
Actor Wilson Cruz will receive the Point Courage Award at the annual Point Honors Los Angeles gala on October 7th at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. The award recognizes those who have advocated for the future of our LGBTQ community & believe in the vision that investing in today’s potential will produce a brighter tomorrow. Point Foundation is the nation's largest scholarship-granting organization for LGBTQ students of merit. Cruz stated, "I am honored to be receiving the Point Courage Award during a special evening that will help Point Foundation’s scholarship recipients. It's important that we continue to uplift & strengthen our LGBTQ youth who are the future of our community & remind them that their voices are heard." As we have reported also being honored at the gala on October 7th will be TV & film writer, director, and producer Jill Soloway (Amazon’s “Transparent,” and “I Love Dick,” & HBO’s “Six Feet Under”), who will receive the Point Impact Award presented to an individual who has made a significant impact on improving the lives of our LGBTQ community. Comedian Michelle Collins will host Point Honors, which also features a performance by Grammy-nominated singer, Adam Lambert. Jorge Valencia, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Point Foundation concluded, “We are thrilled to recognize Wilson Cruz & Jill Soloway’s groundbreaking work in TV & film & their ongoing contributions to Point Foundation & the LGBTQ Community. Our scholars & all LGBTQ young people benefit when there are role models like Cruz and Soloway who are living their lives genuinely & openly & succeeding in their endeavors.”
