GLAAD To Honor Judith Light (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, January 23, 2020
GLAAD has announced that award-winning actress, producer & fierce LGBTQ ally Judith Light will be honored with the Excellence in Media Award at the 31st Annual GLAAD Media Awards in NYC. The Excellence in Media Award is presented to a media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting acceptance of LGBTQ people. Sarah Kate Ellis GLAAD President & CEO stated, “Judith Light stood up for & with LGBTQ people when others in media & entertainment refused to speak up & she has never left our side. When the GLAAD Media Awards first started & was a small event with little visibility, she was one of the few entertainers who would join us in calling for LGBTQ representation, so it is only fitting to now honor her advocacy on what has become the largest LGBTQ stage in the world. From standing alongside LGBTQ people during the AIDS crisis, to fighting for marriage equality, to now uplifting transgender people & issues, Judith advocates with a unique passion and an unending dedication that uplifts.” As a multiple Tony & Emmy award-winning actress Judith Light is known for her extensive body of television, film & stage work for which she recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. GLAAD also announced that Lilly Singh, openly bisexual executive producer & host of NBC’s “A Little Late with Lilly Singh” will serve as host of the Awards that takes place at the Hilton Midtown in NYC on Thursday, March 19th. GLAAD previously announced that Ryan Murphy will receive the Vito Russo Award at the New York ceremony. I talked with Judith Light in 2009 at the GLAAD Media Awards in NYC about her commitment to our LGBTQ community in this exclusive sound byte. (Photo Credit: Emma McIntyre) LISTEN:
