And my message - especially 'Firework' - It's been kind of my mantra."

"I hope all LGBTQ youth know that they are as valuable as anyone else, that they are amazing and unique, and make the world a more vibrant place," Perry said in her acceptance speech. "Trevor's life-saving, life-affirming work helps youth find the future they deserve. I want every young person to choose to have a tomorrow and to dream for the future."
