Kesha is a hero in more ways than one. She deserves recognition for her music and her more recent bravery as an outspoken survivor of (alleged) abuse, but Kesha's work as an advocate for LGBTs often gets overlooked. Luckily, this is something the Human Rights Campaign recently acknowledged formerly with an award honoring of Our Lady Of Glitter.
At the HRC awards on March 5th, a saddened Kesha accepted the Visibility Award, given to “high profile individuals who use their platform to advance and advocate for the LGBT movement.” It's hard not to feel for our girl as she thanks her fans for all the love.
“As many of you know I am going through some personal things that have been really intense and hard lately,” she said, “and I just want to say thank you for any support I have received.”
“Fame is strange and unnatural,” she continued, “and I’m grateful for it mainly because it has put me in the position where I can actually do something positive for the world.”

Kesha's current legal battle against her producer and alleged abuser Dr. Luke, which she referred to in her acceptance speech, are in a bit of a standstill at the moment. Recently, a judge ruled against her, forcing Kesha to stay under her contract and disallowing her from releasing new music without Luke.
