Demi Lovato Reveals Her Grandfather Was Gay [VIDEO]

In her touching speech during Logo TV’s 1st Annual Trailblazers event in New York City this week (June 23), Demi Lovato honored one particular “trailblazer” — her grandfather.

“I’ve never spoken about this before, but my grandfather was a trailblazer himself,” the singer revealed. “He was brave enough to come out in the 1960s, and I feel 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.”

According to the Trailblazers website, the event celebrates “the pioneers who have made historic strides for LGBT equality.”

In her speech, Demi acknowledged this, adding, “It’s such an honor to be welcomed and embraced by the LGBT community, so thank you very much.”

The one-hour Trailblazers special airs on Logo TV at 9PM ET on June 26. You can watch Demi’s remarks in the video above!
