Singer Demi Lovato has revealed that her grandfather was gay. The ‘Neon Lights’ hitmaker, who is a supporter of LGBT community, shared the news when she attended Logo TV’s Trailblazers in New York City on June 23, reported Ace Showbiz.
“I’ve never spoken about this before, but my grandfather was a trailblazer himself,” she said before presenting an award to ‘Orange Is the New Black’.
“He was brave enough to come out in the 1960s, and I feel that a lot of my spirit has come from him. He passed away a few years later and I only wish he could have been able to see all the progress that has been made. It’s such an honor to be welcomed and embraced by the LGBT community, so thank you very
much,” she said.
Other stars who were also present at the event honouring supporters of LGBT rights included Adam Levine, Nate Ruess, Daniel Radcliffe, Joe Manganiello, Lance Bass and Pete Wentz.
