Singer Kesha on Saturday was honored for her gay rights advocacy.

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest LGBT rights advocate, presented Kesha with its Visibility Award.

Kesha fought back tears as she thanked her fans for their support.

“As many of you know, I am going through some personal things that have been really intense and hard lately,” she said. “I just want to say thank you for the support I have received.”

The honor comes just weeks after a judge denied her request to let her out of a contract with producer Dr. Luke, whom she alleges sexually and psychologically abused her. Dr. Luke has denied the claims.

“We are all equal. That is the principle this country was founded on. And yet we're still not living up to that. Even today, we have presidential candidates who oppose marriage equality,” Kesha said.

“Here in Tennessee, right now, there are 25 anti-LGBT bills active this session that would roll back LGBT rights and hurt equality. Specifically, one bill that would prevent transgender students from accessing appropriate sex-segregated facilities consistent with their gender identity. I know people have been talking about that all night, but that's fucked,” she said to loud applause. “I'm not okay with it.”

“You have my love and my support until the day I die,” she added.
