held at The Cinerama Dome on Tuesday (September 19) in Los Angeles.
The 32-year-old actress and Wilson, 43, were joined at the event by their other cast mates Anthony Rapp and his boyfriend Teerakeni, Michelle Yeoh, Rainn Wilson, Mary Wiseman, Shazad Latif, Sam Vartholomeos, Doug Jones, Jason Isaacs, Kenneth Mitchell, Mary Chieffo, James Frain and Sonequa‘s husband Kenric Green.
As more TV and movie roles came his way, Cruz decided to try his luck on Broadway. He's been honored by GLAAD with their Visibilidad Award, presented to Spanish-language members of the community who have made a difference in promoting equal rights, and he once sat on their board.
In 1998, he took on the role of Angel, a young drag queen with AIDS, in Rent. We talked with Cruz about his approach to his career and why he's returning to his hometown of New York City, and we even got him to reveal his first celebrity crush.

In the beginning of transitioning, I was so happy to be trans, and then, like a year in, I was like 'I'm done with being trans.
