ER star Laura Innes has been honoured with this year's (03) Artistry Award from a gay rights organisation, for her portrayal of a gay character on hit medical drama ER.

Innes plays DR KERRY WEAVER on the NBC show, and was singled out by the POWER UP organisation, who work to promote the visibility and integration of gay women in entertainment.

Innes says, "I hope her inclusion in prime time helps break down barriers of prejudice and injustice on-screen and off."
