Ty Burrell was presented with an award for his gay rights advocacy by his Modern Family co-star Jesse Tyler Ferguson on Saturday at the 10th annual Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Utah Gala Dinner at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City.
“Ty is an amazing guy and he’s an incredibly passionate advocate of equality,” Ferguson said in presenting the award. “And the thing that makes Ty such an amazing ally is his complete cluelessness. And I mean that in the best way. His default mode is inclusiveness and fairness.”
In accepting his award, Burrell said such an honor would not have been possible were it not for the efforts of activists who came before him.
“I say this award comes to me because of the hard work of others for two main reasons. Number one: It’s easier to be an ally for equality right now on Earth than it ever has been. And that’s due to the hard work and sacrifice, sometimes the ultimate sacrifice, of so many thousands of people gay and straight who helped us get to this moment.”
“Number two, because I’m part of a show that’s made a real difference in the way people view same-sex relationships.”
“I’m honored to stand with you all tonight, and, yes, I’m even humbled,” he added.
After a very long long time with previous themes I decided it was time for a change. Nicole designed the headers and I coded them into a layout. I wanted to give the site a look of funny and colors as I see and think Ty is truly, other than amazing in acting. I hope you like them as much as I do. If you see any error please contact me.
I found two old photoshoots from 2012 and 2013 of Ty which I added to the gallery. Enjoy!
