The awards are slated to take place in San Francisco on May 14 and, according to the Hollywood Reporter, "Sex and the City" alumna Kim Cattrall will receive the Golden Gate Award -- presented annually to media professionals who have increased the visibility and understanding of the LGBT community.

"Kim Cattrall has not only grown acceptance of our community through storylines on shows like Sex and the City, but used her platform to speak out for equality," GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios says in a statement. "We are proud to honor such a talented and passionate advocate."

Previous winners include Brooke Shields, Stockard Channing, Jennifer Beals and Cybill Shepherd.
