Singer Ricky Martin and Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth will be honored at the 22nd annual GLAAD Media Awards.

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) will honor the celebrities at their upcoming awards shows.

Martin will receive the Vito Russo Award in New York on Saturday, March 19, while Chenoweth will be honored with the Vanguard Award in Los Angeles on Sunday, April 10.

The Vito Russo Award honors an openly LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference promoting gay rights.

Martin, who came out last March, has gone on to talk openly about his sexuality.

“Ricky coming out was a game changer for many gay and transgender Latino children, who for too long, did not have many out gay people to look up to,” GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios said in a statement. “Through his music, videos, and interviews, Ricky has sent an important message that our community wants the same things all people do: an equal chance to raise our families and take care of our loved ones.”

The Tony Award-winning Chenoweth will be honored for her work as a gay rights ally. GLAAD noted that Chenoweth came to the defense of her Promises, Promises co-star Sean Hayes when a Newsweek op-ed said he didn't play straight believably.

“When allies like Kristin take such powerful stands against anti-gay sentiments in the media, it sends an important message of equality,” Barrios said. “It is a privilege to honor such a talented and conscientious advocate for fairness towards the LGBT community.”

GLAAD also announced that Watch What Happens: Live host Andy Cohen will host the New York show.
