HRC President Chad Griffin said, “We are thrilled to honor Katy Perry for using her powerful voice and international platform to speak out for LGBTQ equality. Her compelling advocacy, from the stage to the campaign trail, has had a profound effect on the lives of LGBTQ people — and, in particular, young people. Katy’s message of inclusion and equality continues to inspire us and the world.”

Speaking about Ferrera, best known for her role in the television series ‘Ugly Betty’, Griffin said, “America Ferrera has shown an unwavering commitment to advancing equality for all people and sets a stirring example for others to follow. As we continue the fight for full equality during this very uncertain time for our country, we are constantly inspired by America and our friend, Lena Dunham — both fierce and outspoken champions of equality.”
