Singer Demi Lovato will be honored for her LGBT rights advocacy at next month's 27th annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles.

At the April 2 event, Lovato 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.”

In 2014, Lovato appeared in an HRC video in support of marriage equality.

“Whether you're LGBT or straight your love is valid, beautiful and an incredible gift,” she said in the 45-second ad.

She also played a lesbian love interest for the character played by Naya Rivera on the fifth season of Fox's Glee.

“Demi Lovato has consistently used her platform as a successful artist to send messages of acceptance and support to LGBT people everywhere,” GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said in announcing the group's decision. “She is an extraordinary ally who is committed to helping young people embrace who they are and live the lives they love.”

This year's awards show will be broadcast April 4 on Logo.
