While accepting the Human Rights Campaign Visibility Award at the 2016 Nashville Equality Dinner, Kesha delivered a powerful and inspiring speech on her history with the LGBTQ community, going right back to when she was "an odd little kid with homemade clothes and inability to fit in." Having always felt like a misfit, Kesha describes how she was also drawn to other social "outsiders" within the LGBTQ community. Overall her message was about having the courage to be yourself and to love that what makes you unique. Fighting back tears she also addressed her recent legal issues. "As many of you know I am going through some personal things that have been really intense and hard lately," she remarked, "I just want to say thank you for any support I have received." Since a recent court ruling denying her release from her contract with alleged abuser, Dr Luke, numerous supporters have stood up and spoken out including Adele, Lady Gaga, Lena Dunham and Demi Lovato, and many more continue to do so.
