How cool of these celebrities to support such an amazing celebration!
Demi Lovato Supports Gay Pride Through Her Music
Demi works frequently with GLAAD to support the LGBT community, and it’s so important for her legion of Lovatics to see her supporting the LGBT cause.
Her music video for “Really Don’t Care” took over the streets of Los Angeles on June 8 during the Gay Pride Parade, where she was Grand Marshal. She even allowed numerous individuals who supported the celebration into her music video — how fun!
Netflix’s Orange Is The New Black even had a float of its own — makes sense, considering the incredible LGBT representation featured on OITNB, including trans actress Laverne Cox.
What do you think of these celebrities tweeting about gay pride, HollywoodLifers? Demi is such an awesome individual; did you guys like her new music video? Let us know what you’re thinking!
