Gay media watchdog group GLAAD will honor Sex and the City 2 star Kim Cattrall on Saturday night at the group's final installment of its 2011 Media Awards in San Francisco.

Cattrall will receive GLAAD's Golden Gate Award, which is presented to a media professional who, through his or her work, has increased the visibility and understanding of the LGBT community.

“Kim Cattrall has not only grown acceptance of our community through storylines on shows like Sex and the City, but used her platform to speak out for equality,” said GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios in a statement. “We are proud to honor such a talented and passionate advocate.”

Naya Rivera, who plays closeted lesbian Santana on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, will host the event.

GLAAD will hand out prizes in three categories during its third and final awards installment.

Burlesque, Easy A, The Girl Who Played With Fire, The Kids Are All Right and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World are nominated in the group's Outstanding Film – Wide Release category.

Nominees in the Outstanding Documentary category include 8: The Mormon Proposition, Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement, Prodigal Sons, Sylvester, and Out. The Glenn Burke Story.

And two artists – Christian Chavez and Fedro – are vying for the group's Outstanding Spanish-Language Music Artist award.
