Several entertainers were honored at the 2024 Gold Gala. Notable actress Lucy Lui was honored with the Gold Legend award.

“I love that we are all here tonight because there is no ceiling. And I’ve never seen that for myself and I want to all collectively to understand how special this moment is that we are as a community,” Liu said in her acceptance speech. “I share this award with you because you have lifted me up, given me strength. You have made me so proud.”

Lui talks about her journey and how it was lonely, but also acknowledges how different the landscape is today. Mainly, due to her contributions to the industry and the sacrifices she’s made to pave the way for talent like Karrueche to prosper.

“It’s hard when you’re the first person in the room,” she continued. “When you’re the only person that is different. And we are here now and we are collectively special because of that.”

The actress was presented with the award by Regina King, who recently directed Liu in the Netflix series “A Man in Full.”
