Demi Lovato Is Glad To Represent LGBT People As A Young Lesbian on “Glee”

Demi-Lovato-demi-lovato-28692912-1920-1200I get to play a lesbian on the show and that’s something that I feel like hasn’t really been brought to primetime with, you know, as a young actress, and I think it represents where our society is today. It’s becoming the norm and I’m really glad that I get to represent that — how far we’ve come.

You know, 15 years ago you wouldn’t have seen that on TV, but now people are becoming more comfortable with it and I’m glad that I get to represent that, and also, just hopefully inspire people with my character to love who they are and accept who they are and not give a crap what other people think.”
