Stage and screen actress Kim Cattrall, best known for playing Samantha Jones on HBO's "Sex in the City," received the Golden Gate Award, which is presented to media professionals who, through their work, have increased the visibility and understanding of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
In Cattrall's acceptance speech, she talked about how members of the LGBT community have been her friends and supporters throughout her life, and that she is honored to show her support for them both on screen and off.
“Kim Cattrall has not only grown acceptance of our community through storylines on shows like 'Sex and the City,' but used her platform to speak out for equality,” said GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios in a statement. “We are proud to honor such a talented and passionate advocate.”
