Jennifer Lopez will receive GLAAD's Vanguard Award later this spring. The award honors entertainers who have made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for LGBT people. 

Lopez will presumably receive the award on behalf of the seven producers of ABC Family's The Fosters, of which she is one. The series centers on a blended family composed of lesbian parents and their biological and adoptive children. The drama is reportedly based partly on Lopez's late aunt and her experiences of discrimination. 

"When it comes to gay marriage, I just believe in love," Lopez said. "I believe that when two people find each other and love each other, they should be able to spend their lives together with all the same benefits and privileges as everyone."

GLAAD CEO and President Sarah Kate Ellis stated, "Through her work to bring The Fosters to life and by consistently speaking out as a powerful ally, Jennifer Lopez has not only sent a message of acceptance to LGBT adults and young people, but inspired new support for our community among her many fans around the globe."
