Murphy will be feted for the groundbreaking depiction of LGBT youth on "Glee," exemplified by gay glee clubber Kurt (Chris Colfer) and his sometimes-awkward but fiercely loving relationship with his father (Mike O'Malley). The event will also recognize film director Lisa Cholodenko for her work on "The Kids Are All Right," the recent film about lesbian parents starring Annette Bening and Julianne Moore.
"Modern Family" co-stars, stage vet Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Emmy winner Eric Stonestreet, will host the event, which will also feature appearances by "Glee" Emmy winner Jane Lynch, Oscar winner and Tony nominee Laurence Fishburne, Oscar winner Marlee Matlin, Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and more. Grammy Award winner Nelly Furtado will perform.
