Matthew Morrison presented with equality award

'Glee' actor and singer Matthew Morrison was honoured over the weekend for his contributions to promoting equality in the gay community.

The superstar attended the The Human Rights Campaign's annual gala dinner in Atlanta, Georgia on May 4 and was presented with the Ally Award at the event for "his outspoken support of equality for the LGBT community".

The Ally Award is given to an individual outside of the LGBT community who fights for the equality of all people and writing about the honour on his official Twitter page, the heartthrob thanked his fellow 'Glee' castmember Jonathan Groff (who plays Jesse St. James on the show) for the prize:

"Big thank you to my pal, Jonathan Groff, for presenting me the Ally Award at the #HRC Gala in Atlanta!"

On June 4, Morrison will release a new album full of Broadway classics covers and the record will be titled 'Where It All Began'.
