Chely Wright – the country music star who recently came out lesbian – will perform at the 21st Annual Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) Media Awards in San Francisco, the group announced Wednesday.

Wright came out gay in an interview with People magazine earlier in the month.

In the interview, Wright called her coming out “magical” and revealed that she once believed she could alter her sexual orientation by praying it away. The 39-year-old singer-songwriter was named Best New Female Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music in 1994.

The June 5 show will be hosted by openly gay comedian Bruce Vilanch.

Also performing will be Australian recording artist Sam Sparro. Sparro announced he is gay on the cover of Australian gay glossy Attitude in 2008.

The group will honor Cybill Shepard and Lee Daniels for their gay advocacy.

Shepard, who played lesbian for three seasons on Showtime's groundbreaking drama The L Word, is being presented with the Golden Gate Award, while Lee Daniels, director of Precious, will receive the Davidson Valenti Award.

The GLAAD Media Awards recognize positive portrayals of the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in 41 categories, including television, film, web and print media.
