GLAAD has announced that Demi Lovato will be honored with the Vanguard Award for her efforts to promote acceptance and equality.

In announcing Lovato, GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis stated:

“Demi Lovato has consistently used her platform as a successful artist to send messages of acceptance and support to LGBT people everywhere,”

A vocal LGBT advocate, Lovato credited her late, gay grandfather for inspiring her to “speak out and stand up for what I believe in.” The  2013 music video for the singer’s hit single “Really Don’t Care” was filmed at a Los Angeles LGBT pride event.  She was featured in the fifth season of Fox’s “Glee” as the love interest of Naya Rivera’s character –a role that she hoped would “inspire people with my character to love who they are and accept who they are.”

The GLAAD Media Awards will be presented on April 2nd at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles and telecast on LOGO,  April 4th.
