Los Angeles LGBT Center's Vanguard Awards

Jesse Tyler Ferguson currently stars as “Mitchell Pritchett” on the Award-winning ABC comedy MODERN FAMILY. He has received five Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and four People’s Choice Award nominations for "Favorite Comedic TV Actor" on behalf of MODERN FAMILY. A longstanding advocate for marriage equality, Ferguson co-founded Tie The Knot in 2012 with his husband, Justin Mikita, where they design limited edition bow ties with all the proceeds going to various organizations that fight for civil rights for gay and lesbian Americans. We are so pleased to honor Jesse and Justin at our Gala!
