LGBT rights advocate GLAAD on Monday announced it will honor Google and YouTube at its September 13 fundraiser in San Francisco.

GLAAD Gala San Francisco: Game Changers will be hosted by actress Taryn Manning (Orange is the New Black) and feature a special performance by Alex Newell (Glee).

Google and YouTube will receive the Ric Weiland Award, which the group says “honors innovators who advance LGBT equality through tech and new media.”

The late Weiland, a computer software pioneer, was an avid supporter of LGBT and HIV/AIDS organizations.

“Few companies have the power to reach billions, and even fewer use that power to help ensure everyone can live the life they love,” GLAAD President & CEO Kate Ellis said in a statement. “Tech innovators like Google are now at the forefront of the global conversation on LGBT equality, ushering in a new era of acceptance and understanding for users across the world. Through groundbreaking campaigns, outspoken support, and a relentless commitment to its LGBT employees, Google has raised the bar on corporate leadership that drives equality forward.”

Kris Perry and Sandy Stier, lead plaintiffs in the landmark case that struck down California's gay marriage ban, Proposition 8, will receive the group's Presidential Local Hero Award at the event.
