The Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund will honor actress and comedian Margaret Cho at the 8th Annual Gay & Leadership Awards — a gala event held at Washington D.C.’s Sewall-Belmont House and Museum on Sept. 24.
Sam Adams, the new mayor-elect of Portland, Oregon, will host the awards presentation. Adams, a recent Victory Fund endorsee, will become the first openly gay mayor of a top 30 U.S. city when he is sworn in in January.
“Margaret Cho has shown real leadership in supporting the rights of the LGBT community. It is fitting and important that our community comes together to applaud and thank her for being such a remarkable and remarkably funny voice for equality,” said Denis Dison, the Victory Fund’s vice president for external affairs.
