HRC President Chad Griffin said in a statement: "We are thrilled to honor Katy Perry for using her powerful voice and international platform to speak out for LGBTQ equality... Her compelling advocacy, from the stage to the campaign trail, has had a profound effect on the lives of LGBTQ people—and, in particular, young people. Katy's message of inclusion and equality continues to inspire us and the world."
