Britney received her GLAAD Media Award last night, presented by Ricky Martin.
In her speech, she said: “Wow! This is so incredibly amazing. I wrote this speech and I feel like our society has always put such an emphasis on what’s normal. And to be different is seen as unusual or seen as strange. But to be accepted unconditionally and to be able to express yourself as an individual through art is such a blessing. Events like this, the one we are attending here tonight, show the world that we’re not alone. We can all join hands together here and know that we are all beautiful. And we can lift each other up and show our gifts without hesitation. Being a mother has shown what it means to love unconditionally. And you all in this room throughout my career have shown me what it means to be loved unconditionally. It’s such an honour to be here. Thank you so much GLAAD and thank you to the LGBTQ community and all my friends and fans. I love you very much. Thank you!”
