Demi Lovato has been a staunch supporter of gay rights, and her dedication to the cause continues with an appearance in a new video by the Human Rights Campaign, the country's largest LGBT civil rights organization.

In the video, Demi talks about marriage equality, saying, "I believe that love comes in all different colors, so whether you're LGBT or straight, your love is valid, beautiful and an incredible gift. So let’s protect love and strengthen the institution of marriage by allowing loving, caring and committed same-sex couples to legally marry.”

Demi has also written an email to HRC's supporters , in which she states, " My generation knows that it's wrong to tell two people in love they can’t get married, simply because of who they love. We’ve got to stand up for what's right and let our voices be heard if we want to put an end to marriage discrimination. The America I know and love values everyone, and that includes the LGBT community. " 

The singer is asking supporters to sign the HRC's pledge in support of marriage equality.

This is just the latest example of Demi's support of gay rights.  She was recently named Grand Marshal of the 44th annual Los Angeles Pride parade and filmed the video for her latest hit, "Really Don't Care," during that event.  In addition, she took part in Trailblazers, Logo TV's recent special honoring the pioneers of gay rights, during which she publicly revealed that her grandfather was gay.
