Looking Past, Moving Forward: Jonathan Groff's Silver Lining after HBO Cancelation | Jonathan Groff

Jonathan Groff: 'Sad' Over Looking Cancelation but Overwhelmed by Fans' 'Outpouring of Love and Support'

Originally posted 04/13/2015 06:15PM

Looking may have been canceled, but its star, Jonathan Groff, isn't done advocating for the LGBT community – or its representation in entertainment.

The out actor will be honored with the LGBT scholarship organization the Point Foundation's Point Horizons Award for his activism Monday night in New York City. In addition to acting in gay projects including Looking and The Normal Heart, Groff, 30, says advocating for the gay community has always been a passion.

As the star points out in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE: "There's not a lot of gay programming on TV," which is why he's disappointed Looking, which followed the lives of several out gay men in San Francisco, was canceled by HBO last month. (A finale special is reportedly in the works: Groff doesn't have any details yet but is excited "to get to say goodbye.")
