In addition to being a world reknowned actress, recording artist and American Idol judge, Lopez is executive producer of ABC Family’s The Fosters.
“Tonight, I thank GLAAD not only for giving me the Vanguard Award, but for honoring The Fosters as the Outstanding Drama of the Year. We are so proud of this show, because our biggest hope is that it’s outstanding because it is doing the same for young people – helping them feel loved, understood, included – as Rita did for me, and as GLAAD does today,” Lopez said.
“You all need to know that GLAAD is spreading the message of love and acceptance in English and en Espanol,” she continued. “El amor es el amor.”
