LOS ANGELES — On Thursday, September 16, 2010, Lambda Legal will present its 18th Annual Liberty Awards at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. This year's awards honor Kari Lizer, producer of CBS' "New Adventures of Old Christine," for her advocacy of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) and HIV issues; and California Faith for Equality, a groundbreaking group building bridges between the LGBT community and people of faith.
Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott; Kari Lizer; California Faith for Equality; Clark Gregg, co-star of "The New Adventures of Old Christine" will participate in Lambda Legal's 18th annual Liberty Awards on Thursday, September 16. Actress, designer, author and longtime friend to the LGBT community Tori Spelling will host the event, which honors heroes who have made strides in the fight for full recognition of the civil rights of the LGBT community and of those with HIV.
Lambda Legal is the country's most prominent and powerful LGBT legal organization. Founded in 1973, the group has won some of the most important legal victories for the LGBT community, including Lawrence v. Texas, which struck down all remaining state sodomy laws, and California's In re Marriage Cases.
