Jeffrey Tambor accepts the Point Courage Award, dedicating it to the Point Scholars by saying “you are the courageous ones in the room. You are the hope of the future and I am so proud to stand here tonight as your ally.”
Groff accepted his Point award, saying "These scholars are breaking ground and inspire all of us with their bravery and vision, at perhaps the moment in life when it is the hardest to say who you are. I wish that I had an ounce of their courage at that time of my life. I worship your ability to speak your truth."
