Ricky Martin and Kristin Chenoweth to Receive GLAAD Awards


The openly-gay singer will be honored with Vito Russo Award, while the actress will be presented with Vanguard Award for 'increasing understanding' of the gay and lesbian community.

Ricky Martin and Kristin Chenoweth will be presented with special awards at next month's Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards. The "Livin' La Vida Loca" hitmaker, who 'came out' in 2010, will receive the Vito Russo Award at the annual prizegiving on March 19 in New York. The accolade is handed to an openly gay media star who has helped promote equal rights.

Meanwhile, Broadway star Chenoweth will also be handed an honor - she'll take home the Vanguard Award at an associated event in Los Angeles on April 10 for "increasing understanding" of the gay and lesbian community.

Chenoweth last year publicly defended gay actors' ability to play straight roles.
