Singer-songwriter Linda Perry is hoping for increased acceptance of gay youth.

Speaking to VH1 on the red carpet at the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center's annual fundraiser An Evening with Women, Perry discussed her reasons for participating in the event.

“I'm hoping that everybody can understand that ... there's nothing wrong with your children parents when they come to you and say, 'Mom, dad; I'm gay,'” Perry said.

Performing at the Kathy Griffin-hosted event held last weekend were Perry, Ozzy Osbourne and Australian singer Sia Furler.

“I just think Ozzy is amazing and I love old school Ozzy,” Perry said.

In March, Perry and Sara Gilbert, a co-host of CBS' The Talk, got engaged.
