Audra McDonald will be honored by PFLAG NYC (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays of New York City) at the organization’s 32nd annual awards gala at Tribeca Three Sixty on Monday, October 15.

Audra will receive the PFLAG NYC “Stay Close” Celebrity Leadership Award in recognition of her years advocating full equality for all lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people and for her participation in the PFLAG NYC “Stay Close” campaign which features straight celebrities appearing with their LGBT loved ones. This past April, Audra and her now-husband Will Swenson were given the “Straight for Equality Award” at PFLAG’s Fourth Annual Straight for Equality Gala.
