Gaultier will receive the 2019 “Humanitarian Award,” and he will be honored alongside country queen Dolly Parton who will receive the Mattie J.T. Stepanek Peacemaker Award.

The Chairman and co-founder of the We Are Family Foundation, Nile Rodgers, described fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier as somebody that he is happy to call a “friend.”

A Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Rodgers praised Gaultier’s incredible work as a fashion designer and forward thinker, which has changed and molded our culture in a beneficial manner. Rodgers stated that he is very grateful to this year’s honorees (Dolly Parton and Jean Paul Gaultier) for their exceptional work in regard to improving humanity and he warmly welcomes them into the WAFF family.
