Want to be a soap star?

Imagine having a walk-on role in your favorite soap opera. One “General Hospital” fan could do just that. The Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN) is featuring an auction during GLSEN’s Respect Awards. Auction offerings include tickets to the Los Angeles Premiere of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” lunch with Julia Roberts, and a number of walk-on roles for HBO’s “True Blood” and ABC’s “Modern Family” and “General Hospital.”

The Respect Awards take place in Los Angeles on Friday October 18 with Kerry Washington (“Scandal”) and Robbie Rogers (LA Galaxy Soccer star) serving as the honorary co-chairs. Academy-Award winning songwriter Dean Pitchford has written a song to be performed by the John Burroughs High School Show Choir and Steve Grand will perform his hit single “All American Boy.” Award winners include actor Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory”) and his partner Todd Spiewak, producer Linda Bloodworth (“Designing Women”), and 11th-grade student Laila Al-Shamma.

The online auction runs until Wednesday October 30. Visit GLSEN’s Online Auction to place your bids. Proceeds support GLSEN’s advocacy work to spread “acceptance of all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.”
