Barbra Streisand will receive a HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN award for her support of gay and lesbian issues, religious freedom, and racial and gender equality.

The group, which lobbies on behalf of gay, lesbian, bisexual and trans-gender people, will present Streisand with its HUMANITARIAN AWARD on 6 March (04).

ELIZABETH BIRCH, the group's executive director, says, "The gay and lesbian community and the nation have been enriched by Ms Streisand. Her passion and leadership are important to all Americans."

The group says Streisand, 61, took a stand against an anti-gay rights proposal in Colorado in 1992 and has been a regular financial contributor to the Human Rights Campaign and other gay and lesbian organisations.

Also being honoured are Craig Zadan and NEIL MERON, executive producers of OSCAR-winning movie Chicago. The organisation is giving Zadan and Meron its corporate award for their work on projects which positively portray gay and lesbian characters.
