Singer Demi Lovato was honored for her
LGBT rights advocacy at Saturday's 27th annual GLAAD Media
Awards in Los Angeles.
Nick Jonas presented Lovato with 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
“What people don't know about me is I
know that you all love Nick Jonas. But I actually have a bigger dick
than he does. And a huge set of balls,” Lovato joked to applause
and catcalls from the audience and Jonas, who was standing nearby.
In accepting the award, Lovato said she
wanted her fans to know that they should always love themselves for
who they are.
“Just go for it. You can do it.
Have no fear. You can do it,” she encouraged her fans.
Lovato is a strong advocate for
marriage equality and she played a lesbian love interest for the
character played by Naya Rivera on the fifth season of Fox's Glee.
Ruby Rose was also honored at Saturday's event, while Caitlyn
Jenner and Jazz Jennings shared an award, and director
Lilly Wachowski made her first public appearance.
Logo on Monday will broadcast a
one-hour special on Saturday's event.
