‘Straight for Equality’ Award to Liza
Citing her outstanding contributions as an artist to advancing equality for all, PFLAG National announced that Academy Award-winning actress and iconic straight ally Liza Minnelli will be honored with the 2010 Straight for Equality in Entertainment award for her lifelong support of LGBT people. The award will be presented at PFLAG’s second annual Straight for Equality Awards Gala on May 1 at the New York Marriott Marquis. Unknown if her former gay husbands will attend.
“Liza Minnelli is the quintessential straight ally – she has been an outspoken supporter of equality for LGBT for her whole life, and her tremendous and ongoing philanthropy in the fight against AIDS has made her a very public advocate of the many individuals and their families who have been affected by the disease,” said Jody M. Huckaby, PFLAG National’s executive director.

“As someone who has been supported and touched by the LGBT community for my entire life, I can’t imagine being anything but an out and proud straight ally who doesn’t fear speaking up to anyone,” said Minnelli.
The first award was presented in 2009 to actress Sigourney Weaver. Learn more about the 2010 Straight for Equality Awards Gala by visiting
