Actress Julia Roberts and her cameraman husband DANNY MODER are set to receive Humanitarian Awards at the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network Respect Awards later this year (14).

The Erin Brockovich star and Moder will be feted in Beverly Hills, California in October (14) for their service to various philanthropic causes including Unicef and Stand Up To Cancer.

GLSEN Executive Director Eliza Byard says, "We are proud to recognise Danny Moder & Julia Roberts, whose inspiring work on HBO's The Normal Heart has brought renewed attention to an important moment - and an ongoing crisis - in Lgbt and American history."

Roberts starred in the Tv movie about the outbreak of Aids, while Moder was the project's cinematographer.

Actor/dancer Derek Hough and producer Robert Greenblatt will also be honoured at the event.
