Multi-award winning actress Sharon Gless (Burn Notice, Queer As Folk, Cagney & Lacey) will be honored at Chicago’s Pride Weekend next month by international LGBT law enforcement members.
The Lesbian and Gay Police Association-Gay Officers Action League of Chicago will present Gless with their Bridge to Unity Award on Saturday, June 26, at the Palmer House Hilton.
This first annual Bridge to Unity award is named for the theme and mission of the 14th Annual International LGBT Conference for Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice Professionals, hosted this year in Chicago by LGPA/GOAL Chicago during Pride Week.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to give this inaugural award to such a shining example of what we intend it to stand for,” said LGPA-GOAL Chicago President Jamie Richardson.
“Gless has been outstanding in her support of the LGBT community and, in her role as Debbie Novotny in Queer as Folk, became an iconic representation of a supportive and loving family member in the LGBT community.”
