Demi Lovato Set for Honors at 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards

Demi Lovato will be feted with the Vanguard Award at the 27th annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles next month.

The awards honors media for accurate and inclusive representations of members of the LGBT community as well as the issues affecting them. Lovato will be recognized for her efforts to promote acceptance and equality.

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.”

Lovato is exec producing the music score and starring in “Charming,” the upcoming animated princess film which will also star Ashley Tisdale and Avril Lavigne.  Lovato is also voicing Smurfette in the 2017 Smurf reboot “Get Smurfy.”

Demi Lovato has consistently used her platform as a successful artist to send messages of acceptance and support to LGBT people everywhere,” said GLAAD resident and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis.

The 27th annual GLAAD Media Awards will be held April 2 at the Beverly Hilton. Highlights from the ceremony will be telecast April 4 on Logo.
