Demi Lovato at LA Pride 2014June was a busy month for singer, songwriter and actress, Demi Lovato. Demi was honoured as the Grand Marshal for both LA Pride and New York Pride in June. But it wasn’t just hear two appearances that have made her stand out as one of the most important celebrity advocates for the LGBT community this summer.

Prior to the launch of Orange is the new Black, television series, Demi revealed that her own grandfather was a trailblazer in the LGBT community, having out in the 1960’s. Unfortunately he passed away a few years later and was not able to be a part of the massive movements the gay community has overcome. She admitted he would be proud and she is excited to be a part of more changes for the future.

In the lead up to the LA Pride parade, which she was the Grand Marshal, Demi had been working on a new song, Really Don’t Care. She worked with Christopher Street West, the organizers of the LA Pride parade and the LA Pride festival, and her crews came out to shoot the video for the new song.

The recently released Really Don’t Care video features scenes from the 2014 LA Pride parade and a special booth where LA Pride festival goers could be filmed in a white box for a chance to be in the video. The result is a sensational music video that truly represents the LGBT community.

On September 6, Demi Lovato kicks off the North American leg of her world tour in Baltimore.
