Stone Gets Award For Support Of Gay Rights

Hollywood actress SHARON STONE has been honoured for her support of gay and lesbian civil rights over the years.

The actress, who has helped raise large amounts of cash for AIDS research and has portrayed lesbian characters in movies like BASIC INSTINCT and IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK 2, received the NATIONAL CENTER FOR LESBIAN RIGHTS SPIRIT AWARD at the organisation's 27th anniversary celebration on Saturday (24APR04) in San Francisco, California.

Stone's contributions also include founding the homeless youth camp PLANET HOPE, and working with PROJECT ANGEL FOOD, a Los Angeles County scheme which feeds homebound victims of AIDS.

San Francisco Mayor GAVIN NEWSOM, who sparked a national debate by issuing marriage licenses to gay couples, presented the 46-year-old actress with the award at Saturday's event.
