Demi Lovato to Receive GLAAD's Vanguard Award

Demi Lovato

At the 27th Annual GLAAD Media Awards, Demi Lovato will be front and center. The pop singer and actress will receive the Vanguard Award for promoting equality and acceptance of the LGBT community.

The "Cool for the Summer" singer will join the celebrated ranks of recognized LGBT advocates including Kerry Washington, Kristin Chenoweth, and Kathy Griffin. The singer cites her gay grandfather as the inspiration and driving force behind her advocacy, and has been a regular at Pride festivals for years.

The music video for "Really Don't Care" was filmed at L.A. Pride and the messages in that video clearly celebrate the LGBT community. Lovato also guest starred on FOX's Glee as Dani, a lesbian love interest for Naya Rivera during the show's fifth season.
