Michael Urie, recently on Broadway in the Tony-nominated revival of Harvey Fierstein's Torch Song, will be honored by the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer civil rights organization, May 18.
The actor, director, and producer will receive the HRC Visibility Award at the 2019 HRC Western New York Dinner in Rochester, New York. The event brings together HRC’s most active members and supporters in the western New York area to raise funds in the fight for LGBTQ equality.
“From his iconic role on Ugly Betty to his award-winning portrayal of Arnold in Torch Song, Michael Urie has captured hearts across America,” said HRC President Chad Griffin. “By using his transformational talents and global platform to celebrate openness and authenticity, Michael Urie is bringing greater visibility to the LGBTQ community and making a real difference for countless people. HRC is proud to honor Michael Urie with the HRC Visibility Award at our 2019 Western New York Dinner.”
