Actress Drew Barrymore is set to host the annual awards for the Gay And Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), a watchdog group that promotes the image of LGBT people in the media.
Barrymore, who in 2010 was honored with GLAAD’s Vanguard Award, will host an evening to honor various branches in media for their representation of the LGBT community.
Grammy Award-winning singer Kelly Rowland will perform at the awards for guests to include Leonardo DiCaprio, Betty White, Chris Evans, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence, Matt Bomer and Naya Rivera to name a few.
GLAAD previously announced that former President Bill Clinton will receive the Advocate for Change Award.
GLAAD chose Barrymore as host of the 14th annual awards for her vehement pro-LGBT position.
In 2009 the actress joined thousands of protestors in the streets of Los Angeles to denounce the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold anti-gay Prop. 8.
Despite being in a series of heterosexual relationships, Barrymore has also previously confessed to liking women.
In a 2003 interview with Contact Music, the actress said she likes women sexually.
‘I have always considered myself bisexual,’ the actress confessed.
In 2004, Barrymore said in an interview: ‘A woman and a woman together are beautiful, just as a man and a woman together are beautiful.’
