Posted Monday December 3, 2012 9:49 AM GMT

Bringing an end to her weekend, Sarah Hyland stepped out for the 2012 Trevor Live celebration in Hollywood last night (December 2).

The “Modern Family” starlet had all eyes on her as she meandered around outside the Hollywood Palladium in an Erin Fetherston dress with Giuseppe Zanotti heels.

During the course of the evening, Sarah helped introduce her costar Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s performance.

The Trevor Live 2012 guest of honor was Katy Perry, who was given the Trevor Hero Award for all of her hard work in promoting the gay rights agenda.

Of their decision to highlight Ms. Perry, Trevor Project executive director/CEO explained, “We're honoring her because, really, she has done so much to empower youth.”

“A couple years ago when, unfortunately, a lot of young suicides made the news … and there was a very visible presence of suicide, Katy stepped up and was out there in the community, speaking against it.

“Her support of marriage equality -- and equality for everyone, really -- is one of the many reasons we're supporting her as our hero this year. Her song Firework is all about empowering youth to just be who they are, and that's what we try to do is make sure that when a young person reaches out to us. We are there to say, ‘The way you are is perfect. Just be the way you are.’”
