SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The lesbian family drama "The Kids Are All Right," about a couple whose lives are disrupted when their children seek out their sperm donor dad, won GLAAD's outstanding film award on Saturday.

The film, which was nominated for four Oscars earlier this year, starred Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo. Writer-director Lisa Cholodenko was on hand to accept the award from the U.S. gay campaign group.

"Sex and the City" star Kim Cattrall was honored with GLAAD's Golden Gate Award for increasing the visibility and understanding of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

Other honorees on Saturday included the documentary "8: The Mormon Proposition," Spanish-language music artist Christian Chavez, and former Wall Street Journal columnist and author Kara Swisher. The corporate leader award went to telecoms company AT&T, which has LGBT inclusive policies for its employees.

The awards were presented at a ceremony in San Francisco hosted by "Glee" star Naya Rivera.

"Glee" tied with "Modern Family" for GLAAD's best TV comedy series award, given out ceremony in April in Los Angeles.

Saturday's ceremony wrapped up the 22nd annual media award season by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, which recognizes TV shows, movies, journalists, musicians and bloggers that most fairly portray the LGBT community and the issues that affect them.
