Joining via video link the multi-award winning music star said: 'On a personal level, I'm honoured to accept this award tonight.

'I've been blessed to know all kinds of people since I was a little girl and fortunately exposed to the beauty and richness of diversity. That's all colours, all religions, all styles, all beliefs, all loves, all people.

'Believe me, I know that hate is taught and judgement is taught, but we are the light and we are the love. I sometimes can't believe how much hate there is to overcome, but where there is light and love, darkness and hate cannot exist.

'I know the powerful LGBTQI+ community has a lot to fight for, stand up to and care about - so just like all of you here tonight, I am here with you to keep showing up, representing and reminding each other we are not alone.

'You'll never be alone and we have to show each other we're all here for each other, let's scream at the top of our lungs everyone deserves love, kindness, equanimity and most of all respect! Period, end of story.

'Of course we've come a long way but there's so much more to do and there's so much more that has to happen, but that's why ceremonies like this are so important.'
