Britney will stop being just a princess.
Britney Spears may be the pop princess, but for the LGBTQ community she is one of her queens, and we do not say it for her songs or her style, but for her activism in favor of civil rights.
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD in its acronym in English) announced that in its next GLAAD Awards to the media the interpreter will receive the prestigious Vanguard Award, the recognition given annually, since 1993, to those personalities of entertainment that contribute to promoting equal rights for people of the LGBTQ community.
Cher, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, Charlize Theron and Antonio Banderas have received this honor in previous years.
“An irrefutable icon, Britney Spears has entertained the whole world while she has embodied the spirit of the Vanguard Award by talking about significant issues that her fans struggle with – from the Dream Law (which sought to grant US citizenship to immigrants who had arrived in the country as illegal when they were a child), to anti-transgender laws in Texas, “said Sarah Kate Ellis , president and CEO of GLAAD, in a statement. “(Britney) It’s a force in the music world that has used its global platform to share messages of love and acceptance, something the world needs more than ever.”
So the news received the Toxic interpreter :
“It is an honor to receive the Vanguard Award from the GLAAD Media Awards this year! The LGBTQ community means the whole world to me and it inspires me day after day.I am proud to be an ally and I will continue to support equality and acceptance for all!!”.
