Nixon, who is best known for her portrayal of Miranda Hobbes in the HBO dramedy Sex and the City, will receive the group's Visibility Award.

"Cynthia Nixon is a fearless and outspoken advocate for all LGBTQ people," said HRC President Chad Griffin. "Cynthia uses her talent and public platform to speak out for equality in this country and around the globe, and in the process, she is changing countless hearts and minds. We are proud to recognize her with the HRC Visibility Award at the 2018 HRC Greater New York Gala."

Nixon, 51, married her wife Christine Marinoni in 2012.
