In announcing the awards, HRC President Alphonso David said,
Through his hilarious representation on and off the screen, Bowen Yang is inspiring LGBTQ young people and many others to embrace their authentic selves. As one of SNL’s openly gay and the only Asian American cast member, Yang is boldly moving visibility forward. We are incredibly excited to honor Bowen Yang with HRC’s Visibility Award at the 2020 HRC North Carolina Dinner.
The 2020 HRC North Carolina Dinner is Saturday, February 22 at the Le Meridien in Charlotte. Come see Bowen in person and support HRC’s important work going into the 2020 elections.
And ICYMI, here’s Bowen as Big Al in a fierce face-off with Ru as fearsome coal mining rival Big Dom. There can be only one!
