Saturday is the 24th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in San Francisco, and these awards like to spotlight people in the entertainment and news industry who support, understand and further LGBT rights. So who better than Adam “For Your Entertainment” Lambert? For his big night, Adam will be receiving the Davidson/Valentini award as a thank-you for all his work for LGBT rights.
Mel B shows the importance of being an ally. She’s stood up for LGBT rights, like the time she both posed and filmed a PSA for NOH8. In the vid she explains that she came from a biracial family, which hasn’t always been accepted, so she knows personally what prejudice is like. In other words, her belief in equality isn’t exclusively about women’s rights or Girl Power!
“I’m a huge fan of those who open doors for social change and equality, and that’s why I’m so honored and thrilled to present the GLAAD Media Award to the brilliant, talented and very deserving Adam Lambert!” Scary Spice said. “His fearlessness is an inspiration.”
And of course someone known to the world as Scary Spice knows a thing or two about fearlessness!
For 25 years, GLAAD has worked to amplify the voices of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people
GLAAD offers opportunities for getting involved in LGBT equality issues locally and nationally.
