Stage and screen legend Liza Minnelli will receive PFLAG's 2010 Straight for Equality in Entertainment Award. The honor recognizes the entertainer's lifelong support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people and will be presented as part of the organization's Straight for Equality Awards Gala to be held on May 1 at the New York Marriott Marquis.

Minnelli's most recent Broadway show, Liza's at the Palace, won a 2009 Tony for Best Special Theatrical Event, and Minnelli has also won Tony Awards for Best Actress in a Musical for Flora the Red Menace and The Act. She also won a special Tony Award in 1974 "for adding lustre to the Broadway season." She was Tony- nominated for The Rink and additional Broadway credits include Victor/Victoria and Chicago. She won the Academy Award for Cabaret and the Emmy Award for Liza With a "Z".

Straight for Equality is a project of PFLAG National that was launched in 2007 to invite, educate, and empower straight allies to demonstrate their support for their LGBT friends and family.
