KATY PERRY RECEIVES NATIONAL EQAULITY AWARD AT HRC GALA WATCH HER SPEECH

Katy Perry receives 'The national Equality Award' from the HRC Gala held in Los Angeles.  Katy was giving this award for all she has done for the 'LGBT' community.  Katy spoked about how much the gays have influence her and how she mored than just kissed a girl.  Here is what Katy had to say:

"There’s no other community that has done more to shape who I am today and there is no other community that I believe in more than you, "This community here tonight has achieved more progress toward a more perfect union in a short amount of time as any group in our history. So I stand with you and I know that we stand together against discrimination whether it bei n the LGBTQ community or our Latino brothers and sisters or the millions of Muslims in this country." "I Kissed A Girl." "Truth be told: I did more than that,  How was I going to reconcile that with the gospel singing girl raised in youth groups that was pro-conversion camps. What I did know is that I was curious, and even then, I knew that sexuality wasn’t as black and white as this dress."
 "My first words were mama and dada, God and Satan. Right and wrong were taught to me on felt boards and of course through the glamorous Jan Crouch crying diamond teardrops every night on that Vaseline-TBN television screen. When I was growing up, homosexuality was synonymous with the word abomination…and hell. A place of gnashing of teeth, continual burning of skin and probably Mike Pence’s ultimate guest list for a barbeque. No way, no way. I wanted the pearly gates and unlimited fro-yo toppings."
"Most of my unconscious adolescence, I prayed the gay away at my Jesus camps, "But then in the middle of it all, in a twist of events, I found my gift and my gift introduced me to people outside of my bubble. My bubble started to burst."
"These people were nothing like I had been taught to fear. They were the most free, strong, kind and inclusive people I have ever met. They stimulated my mind and they filled my heart with joy and they freaking danced all the while doing it, "These people are actually magic, and they are magic because they are living their truth. Oh my goddess, what a revelation – and not the last chapter of the Bible."
 "Many of the people I admire and trust and work with belong to the LGBTQ community, and without them, I would be half the person I am today. My life is rich in every capacity because of them. They are trusted allies that provide a safe space to fall, to not know it all and to make mistakes, "I hope I stand here as evidence for all that it doesn’t matter where you come from, it is about where you are going. Real change, real evolution and real perception shift can happen if we open our minds and soften our hearts. People can change. Believe me."
