The Trevor Project will honor singer Katy Perry for her gay rights advocacy.

Perry will be honored with the group's Trevor Hero Award at its December 2 Trevor Live event at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles.

“Everyone deserves a wonderful, fulfilled life,” said Perry in a statement. “Our sexual orientation and gender identity doesn't change the spark and beauty within. I'm honored that The Trevor Project has selected me to receive the Trevor Hero Award. Their work has inspired me since 2010, and I know they help save lives.”

The Trevor Project is the California-based organization centered on crisis and suicide prevention efforts for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth. The non-profit runs the nation's only 24-hour, toll free confidential suicide prevention hotline for gay and questioning youth.

Perry, 28, dedicated the video to her 2010 single Firework to the It Gets Better Project, which supports The Trevor Project.

Adam Shankman will return to direct Trevor Live.

Previous recipients of the award include Milk scribe Dustin Lance Black, and actors Nathan Lane, Vanessa Williams and Daniel Radcliffe.
