honored at NCLR gala, May 12 in S.F.

Lesbian tennis icon Martina Navratilova will be honored at the 30th anniversary gala for the National Center for Lesbian Rights. She will receive the Voice and Visibility award, which honors those who have demonstrated a commitment to LGBT rights.

The tennis pro publicly announced that she was a lesbian in 1981 and has been vocal about LGBT causes ever since.

Navratilova is arguably one of the the greatest tennis players of all time, with 18 Grand Slam singles titles, 41 Grand Slam doubles titles, and a record nine Wimbledon women's singles titles under her belt. She was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 2000.

The event will take place at San Francisco's Fort Mason Festival Pavilion at 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 12. The ever-witty Kate Clinton will return in a command performance as emcee.
