Jennifer Lopez will be honored at GLAAD's 25th Annual Media Awards in Los Angeles.

At the April 12 event, Lopez will receive the group's Vanguard Award, which is “presented to artists and media professionals who, through their work, have increased the visibility and understanding of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.”

Lopez, an outspoken supporter of marriage equality, is a producer of The Fosters, the ABC Family drama about a two-mom family.

“Through her work to bring The Fosters to life and by consistently speaking out as a powerful ally, Jennifer Lopez has not only sent a message of acceptance to LGBT adults and young people, but inspired new support for our community among her many fans around the globe,” Sarah Kate Ellis, president of GLAAD, said in a statement. “Family is about love, and that's a message Jennifer has shared with millions through her groundbreaking work on The Fosters.”
