True Blood/Magic Mike star and longtime LGBT ally Joe Manganiello accepted the Human Rights Campaign 2014 Ally for Equality Award last weekend.

From Joe’s comments accepting the award:

You know I never set out to be an advocate, I’m simply a person who believes in equality for everyone. And I’m a person who believes in standing up for his friends.

And if I’m being completely honest, there’s a small part of me that felt weird about accepting an award just because I think that everyone should be treated the same – that each individual be allowed the basic human right to love whomever their heart wants to love without fear or hatred or prejudice.
