The Paley Center to Celebrate LGBT Equality at Gala Benefit

The Paley Center for Media will be celebrating the role television has played in LGBT equality at its annual Los Angeles gala on Nov. 12. The fundraising evening will recognize the impact the medium has had on LGBT equality and celebrate the work put in by studios, producers, series and talent to change awareness, understanding and perception of the issue.

From “All in the Family” and “All My Children,” to contemporary programs “The L Word,” “Glee” and “Modern Family,”  “television has reshaped and redefined American identity and culture and has led to important social change,” said Maureen Reidy, president & CEO of the Paley Center, in a statement.  “We believe this is the perfect time to celebrate television’s role in LGBT progress, including almost six decades of programming from the Paley Center’s collection that trace the evolution of this issue in the media, and to announce the expansion of our LGBT Collection.”

Gala co-chairs Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi congratulated the Paley Center on their efforts as well as the LGBT community for the progress that has been made.

The Paley Center will also launch an expanded LGBT media collection chronicling LGBT images in television over six decades.
