Actor Jonathan Del Arco, who is best known for his role as Hugh the Borg on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and currently starring as the openly gay Dr. Moralis on TNT's hit Major Crimes, recently accepted the HRC Visibility Award, presented by the Cleveland Steering Committee.

Del Arco took the road less traveled and came out early in his career.  He has also dedicated significant time to political, environmental, and LGBT rights causes.  And he has used his acting platform to raise substantial visitbility and make significant improvements for LGBT youth, helping to provide the sort of welcoming and safe spaces that all children deserve.

Watch Del Arco’s acceptance speech below.
