Singer Demi Lovato, who played a gay character on Glee (TV Series), has revealed that her grandfather was gay.
"I feel a lot of my spirit has come from him," Lovato, who has overcome addiction and self-harm issues and who became a poster girl for survival, told Logo TV's Trailblazers. She has been warmly embraced by the gay community herself, and even supported Pride events this month.
"I've never spoken about this before, but my grandfather was a trailblazer himself," Lovato said. "He was brave enough to come out in the 1960s, and I feel a lot of my spirit has come from him."
She continued, "He passed away a few years later, and I only wish he could have seen all the progress that has been made. It's such an honor to be welcomed and embraced by the LGBT community."
It's amazing that Lovato and her grandfather have that cosmic connection.
