The Tyler Clementi Foundation's first annual Upstander Legacy Celebration will take place on Monday, November 18, at the New York Times Building's Conference Center. Cochairs Alan Cumming and David Mixner, along with the Clementi family, will host.

The event will honor Bruce Cohen, Oscar-winning producer of American Beauty, Milk, and more, as well as Big Fish on Broadway. Additional honorees will include Dr. Paul Boskind, renowned psychologist, activist, and Tony-winning producer of The Normal Heart, and financial services leader Prudential Financial for its continued support of the LGBT community in and out of the workplace.

Tony nominee Bobby Steggert will present the Upstander Legacy Award to Cohen. The evening will also feature a performance by the all-male string quartet Well-Strung.

The Tyler Clementi Foundation promotes safe, inclusive, and respectful social environments in homes, schools, campuses, churches, and the digital world for vulnerable youth, LGBT youth, and their allies.
