Christina Aguilera has received many commendations throughout her career but none may be as prestigious as her newest one.
The nation’s largest LGBTQ civil rights organization recently decided to honor the multi-Grammy winner with its Ally for Equality award. The Human Rights Campaign announced Thursday (March 7) that the 38-year-old Pennsylvania native is a true “LGBTQ icon” who uses her platform to “share a message of hope and inspiration” to those who have been marginalized.
The group says the “Accelerate” singer has raised money to fight HIV/AIDS, advocated marriage equality and spoken out against LGBTQ bullying. They also claim that Aguilera’s 2002 Sony Music-released single “Beautiful” is an empowering LGBTQ anthem.
Christina will be honored at The Human Rights Campaign’s dinner in Los Angeles on March 30th, where the unmistakable voice of Lisa Simpson, Yeardley Smith, will also accept the national leadership award.
