Demi Lovato Reveals Her Grandfather Was Gay: VIDEO


The Grand Marshal of this year’s LA Pride Parade and the headliner of NYC’s Pride event, Dance on the Pier, happening this weekend on June 29, recently revealed that her grandfather was gay, according to MTV News. Lovato, who has never before publicly shared this story about her grandfather, opened up at Logo's Trailblazers event celebrating the one year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s historic ruling in United States v. Windsor:

“I’ve never spoken about this before, but my grandfather himself was a trailblazer. He was brave enough to come out in the 1960s, and I feel a lot of my spirit has come from him,” she said. “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.”

  3. In a world where so many continue to not stand up to be counted, and where so many people ignore their gay relatives, bury them in The Closets they never wanted to be in while alive, and utterly ignore their lives as LGBT people - kudos to Demi for sharing this story.

    Her fan base is young - meaning millions of young people will hear this, and follow her lead in celebrating love, diversity and Pride.

    so everything about this is great. well met, lass.
