GLAAD the global LGBTQ media advocacy organization has announced that actor & #MeToo advocate Alyssa Milano will be honored with the Ariadne Getty Ally Award at the 2018 GLAAD Gala San Francisco on September 15th at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco. Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD President & CEO stated, “Alyssa Milano has long been an outspoken powerhouse for acceptance of LGBTQ people & other marginalized groups, just as the award’s namesake Ari Getty has done. Whether protesting the proposed ban on transgender people in the military or advocating for gender equality in Hollywood, Milano not only raises her voice, but leads actions that create substantive & lasting change.” The Ariadne Getty Ally Award is presented to an LGBTQ ally who uses their voice & public platform to accelerate & affect acceptance for our LGBTQ community. The award is named after philanthropist Ariadne Getty a native of San Francisco & member of GLAAD’s Board of Directors who announced a $15 million lead gift to support GLAAD’s work to accelerate LGBTQ acceptance at the 2018 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Getty will attend the GLAAD Gala with her son designer August Getty & her daughter artist Nats Getty. Emmy Award winning actor & Comedian Leslie Jordan will host the annual gala on September 15th featuring Pose’s Mj Rodriguez, RuPaul’s Drag Race stars Ross Mathews & Michelle Visage, tech journalist Ina Fried & transgender pop star Kim Petras.
