Lady Gaga to receive LGBT honour

LADY Gaga is to receive a Hero Award in recognition of her work with the LGBT community.

The 'Born This Way' hitmaker will be honoured by the Trevor Project - a non-profit company that offers suicide-prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth - at their annual Trevor Live event, while Google Inc. will receive a special Trevor 2020 award.

David McFarland, Trevor Project CEO and executive officer, said: "Our young people are at the centre of a health crisis, and vocal leaders like Lady Gaga and technology leaders like Google Inc. have stepped up to help change our culture.

"Our honorees are working with the Trevor Project to make a better today and a brighter tomorrow for youth. We are proud to honour Lady Gaga with the Trevor Hero Award and Google Inc. with the Trevor 2020 award for their work to help young people express their true selves with pride."

The Trevor Live event takes place on December 4 at the Hollywood Palladium and will have a host of famous faces in attendance.

Fergie, Miley Cyrus, Julianne Hough, Joe Manganiello, Chris Colfer and Darren Criss - who performed 'Teenage Dream' with Katy Perry' at last year's Trevor Live - are all scheduled to appear.
