Emmy-nominated actress Michaela Jaé Rodriguez, was one of the recipients to receive the Stephen F. Kolzak Award during the L.A. ceremony back on April 2.

“I want to thank GLAAD for elevating and celebrating the voices of trans and non-binary people. This moment isn’t about me, it’s about each and every last one of us,” the Golden Globe winner said during her acceptance speech.

“The fact that Stephen was a casting agent is especially meaningful to me because casting is all about someone seeing you and imagining how you could fit into a world being creative. In my life, I like to think that my creator, God, was the casting agent who put me in this world and said ‘Michaela Jaé, I see you fitting in right here, right on this stage.”

Other winner’s include VH1’s RuPaul’s Drag Race which tied with HBO’s We’re Here for Outstanding Reality Program and The Laverne Cox Show, which received a special recognition.
