Demi Lovato is one of Hollywood's most outspoken supporters of gay rights.
And now the pop star is revealing that one of her own grandfathers was gay.
"I've never spoken about this before, but my grandfather was a trailblazer himself," Lovato said before presenting an award to Orange Is the New Black last night at Logo TV's first Trailblazers event. "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," the "Skyscraper" singer said.
