As LA gears up for our annual Gay Pride event, a number of honorees have been named for the occasion. According to a statement on the group's website, the honorees have "demonstrated commitment to greater visibility and understanding, advocacy, human rights, empowerment, marriage equality and service."

This year, they include comedian Margaret Cho, who received the Morris Kight Lifetime Achievement Award. Person of the Year award goes to Bravo VP of Programming and Development/host Andy Cohen. And Dr. Isabel, a leading Hispanic radio host who is supportive of LGBT issues.

This year, in addition to the famous pride parade, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will usher in the first LGBT Heritage Month. Get ready to let your rainbow flag fly!
