Demi Lovato

Thousands of dollars have been raised in just a few hours by Demi Lovato who started a Facebook fundraiser to raise money for GLAAD.

“I’m celebrating Pride by raising money for GLAAD, an organization that has been fighting for LGBTQ+ inclusion and justice since 1985,” Lovato posted on Twitter.

With an initial goal of raising $5,000 Lovato soon re-evaluated her goal having received $7,500 in just a few hours.

The goal has since been raised to $30,000 and has received more than $14,000 in donations to-date.

GLAAD honoured Lovato with the Vanguard Award in 2016 which was presented to her by her friend Nick Jonas. Lovato revealed in her documentary Demi Lovato: Simply Complicated that she is attracted to both men and women.

Lovato also recently opened up to her fans about her struggles with sobriety on her new track Sober in which Lovato reveals a recent relapse. The singer has discussed her issues with addiction, bipolar disorder and an eating disorder in the past.
