Actors George Takei and Jesse Tyler Ferguson and chef Cat Cora were among the celebrities who attended the Human Rights Campaign's (HRC) annual Los Angeles Dinner.

At the event, Vice President Joe Biden called on Congress to approve the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would prohibit workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

(Related: Joe Biden calls it “bizarre” that employers are allowed to fire gay workers.)

Among the openly gay celebrities spotted at the event were Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Modern Family), George Takei (Star Trek), Cat Cora (Iron Chef America), Meredith Baxter (Family Ties), Peter Paige (Queer as Folk) and Bob Harper (The Biggest Loser), reported.

Out California Rep. Mark Takano also attended the event.
