The National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) has announced that it will honor out actress Jane Lynch, of Glee and Julie & Julia, for using her fame as a platform to further LGBT equality, and for being an outspoken advocate for creating safer, welcoming schools for LGBT children. Lynch will receive the honor at the NCLR’s 2012 Anniversary Celebration – which marks its 35th year – May 5 at San Francisco’s City View at Metreon.

NCLR said, “The Vanguard Award honors an individual whose life and spirit exemplifies NCLR’s vision and values of equality and justice for all.

“This year’s award goes to famed actress Jane Lynch, of Glee and Julie & Julia, who has lived an authentic life as an out lesbian while simultaneously achieving great success and visibility in television and film.”
