True Blood’s Joe Manganiello Attends the Human Rights Campaign Seattle Dinner:

Recently, Joe Manganiello (who played werewolf Alcide Herveaux in HBO’s True Blood) attended the Human Rights Campaign Seattle Dinner to accept his Ally for Equality award. Joe had this to say in his speech:

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.

Joe achieved this accolade by supporting the work of the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) at past galas as well as being a strong advocate for equal rights for the LGBT community.

Joe’s girlfriend, Sofia Vergara attended the event with him and was kind enough to post a couple of pictures to Instagram:
