LuPone ( Evita, Gypsy, Les Misérables, "American Horror Story") is honored alongside Architectural Digest editor-in-chief Margaret Russell, who also receives the Ally for Equality Award.

According to the HRC, "As a singer and actress, Patti LuPone has publicly supported LGBT equality for many years and has said that her vocal LGBT following gives her credibility."
