Last night the Human Rights Campaign held our 14th Annual National Dinner in Washington, D.C. at the Washington Convention Center.
As a special surprise, Ricky Martin opened the show talking about his recent coming out. The program also included White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett as the guest speaker; Grammy Award winning artist P!nk who was presented with the Ally for Equality Award by Bette Midler; the National Arts & Culture Award went to the hit ABC series Modern Family and was accepted by cast members Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson; and Lee Daniels, Producer and Director of Precious and Monsters Ball took home the Visibility Award presented by Precious star Mo’Nique.
More than 3,000 people attended the event chaired by Marjorie Chorlins & Kirkland Hamill.
