It was the year of the queer community for the 2019 Grammy Awards last night (10 February).
Lady Gaga and Brandi Carlile both made history as the first out winners in their categories.
Gaga took home Best Pop Solo Performance and Carlile Best Americana Album and Best American Roots Performance.
While divas Diana Ross and Dolly Parton took to the stages to perform LGBTI anthems.
But in case you’ve been too busy with the BAFTAs, here are the 13 LGBTI moments of the 2019 Grammy Awards:
1 Ricky Martin and his son Matteo walked the red carpet
‘Cool cat for a date at the Grammys!’ the pop star and family man wrote on Instagram.

Michelle came dressed to the Grammys looking like Album of the Year.
3 Ricky Martin performed Havana with Camila Cabello
The opening performance included multiple references to Trump’s border wall; ‘Build bridges not walls’.
4 Lady Gaga won big and dedicated her speech to mental health
Putting the ‘star’ in A Star Is Born, Best Pop Duo or Group Performance Act was Gaga’s third award that night.
5 Brandi Carlile referenced coming out during her acceptance speech
If only there was an award for ‘Best Acceptance Speech’.
