Demi Lovato reveals gay grandfather, "He was brave enough to come out in the 1960s"
UPI News Service, 06/25/2014
Demi Lovato opened up about a gay member of her family while appearing in Logo TV's inaugural Trailblazers special.
"I've never spoken about this before, but my grandfather himself was a trailblazer. He was brave enough to come out in the 1960s, and I feel a lot of my spirit has come from him," the avid LGBT advocate said.
"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."
Logo TV's Trailblazers special comes on the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court striking down the federal Defense of Marriage Act.
