Perry, teary-eyed, was deeply moved by the award.

She launched into a ten-minute long speech about the LGBT community.

The speech touched on her religious upbringing, her experience with kissing a girl and liking it, and the long road that the LGBT community has trod in search of true equality.

Perry began:

This community here tonight has achieved more progress towards 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 be in the LGBT community, or our latino brothers and sisters, or the millions of muslims in this country.

I’m just a singer-songwriter honestly. I speak my truths and I paint my fantasies into these little bite-sized pop songs.
