Pop star Demi Lovato has been named celebrity of the year at the 2021 British LGBT Awards.
The singer came out as non-binary in May earlier this year and now uses the pronouns they/them.
The awards, which were held on Friday evening, celebrate the best British and international LGBT+ talent, as well as the allies and organisations which support them.
Other celebrities who won awards on the night included American politician Hillary Clinton and British musician Olly Alexander.
Mrs Clinton, who is a former US secretary of state and presidential candidate, was awarded the global ally award.
She joined the ceremony by video-link and said she "could not be prouder to stand with the LGBT+ community", adding there is "more work to be done to change laws and change hearts and minds" until LGBT+ people secure full equality.
TV presenter Phillip Schofield was also honoured with a special prize. The Dancing on Ice host, who announced last year that he's gay, gave an emotional video message as he received a special recognition award.
Olympic boxing champion Nicola Adams, who made history when she become one half of Strictly Come Dancing's first female same-sex couple during last year's series, won the LGBT+ role model prize and singer Anne-Marie was named music artist of the year.
England and Wolverhampton Wanderers footballer Conor Coady won the football ally award, which was introduced this year to highlight the lack of gay, bisexual and gender expansive representation in the upper leagues of the sport.
Coady, who has supported the charity Stonewall's Rainbow Laces campaign to make football more inclusive for LGBT+ people, said he was "deeply honoured and incredibly proud" to be recognised.
"We were so delighted to be able to host a celebration of the people working hard to advocate for and advance LGBT+ rights after what has been a difficult 18 months.," said the event's founder Sarah Garrett.
"All of the winners and nominees are incredibly deserving."
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are said to be considering relocating to Windsor in a move that would mean they are better able to support the Queen as they take on a more senior role at the heart of the Royal Family.
The couple, who currently split their time between Kensington Palace in London and Anmer Hall in Norfolk, are understood to be "seriously considering" moving as they take on a more senior role at the heart of the Royal Family.
They are reported to be looking at various possible properties around Windsor Great Park as a long term base for their family.
Anmer Hall on the Sandringham Estate was a wedding gift from the Queen and after being extensively renovated became the family's permanent home between 2015 and 2017.
At the time the Norfolk property was conveniently located because Prince William was working as a helicopter pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
But with their two older children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, at school in London, and the Duke and Duchess taking on more royal responsibilities, a move to Windsor is seen as more appropriate for their lifestyle.
Despite reports that the Cambridge's were planning to send Prince George to a new prep school in Berkshire, the Telegraph understands the eight-year-old will return to Thomas's Battersea next month for the start of the new school year.
He will be joined by six-year-old Princess Charlotte, who goes into Year Two, while their younger brother Prince Louis, three, will remain at Willcocks Nursery School in Kensington.
If Princes George and Louis are to follow in their father's footsteps and attend Eton, a move to Windsor would also mean their school would be on the doorstep.
Relocating to Windsor would also mean they were less than an hour's drive from Bucklebury in Berkshire where Kate's parents, Michael and Carole Middleton live.
One option could be Frogmore House, which is currently unoccupied and just half a mile from Windsor Castle, within the grounds of Windsor Home Park
Its 35 acre gardens are sometimes referred to as the Royal Family’s "secret bolt-hole".
The Queen has described them as "wonderfully relaxing" and often drives there to walk her dogs.
The house, which is open to the public on certain days of the year, was the chosen venue for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding reception in May 2018.
Bought by Queen Charlotte in 1792, who employed the architect James Wyatt to transform the house and grounds, it has remained a special place for the Royal Family.
The future George VI and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, loved it so much that they even spent part of their honeymoon there in 1923.
It is also the burial place of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, with the former praising its tranquility as “you only hear the hum of bees, the singing of the birds”.
But among all the practical considerations, relocating to Windsor would allow the couple to provide much needed support to the Queen following the death of the Duke of Edinburgh earlier this year.
The 95-year-old monarch plans to base herself permanently at Windsor when she returns from her summer break at Balmoral.
The Duke and Duchess of Wessex, the Duke of York and Princess Eugenie all live close to Windsor and having the Cambridges close by as well, would give the Queen a boost, according to royal sources.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex lived in Frogmore Cottage on the Windsor estate until they relocated to the United States, but that property is now being used by Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank, who have a six-month old son.
A spokesman for the Cambridges refused to comment and described the reports as "speculation".
Rev. Jesse Jackson Moved to Rehab Center After COVID-19 Diagnosis While His Wife, Jacqueline, Is Moved to the ICU
The family of the Rev. Jesse Jackson announced Friday that the civil rights icon has been transferred to a rehabilitation facility and his wife, Jacqueline, was moved to the intensive care unit as they continue treatment for COVID-19.
This comes after the Jacksons were initially admitted to Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital last Saturday after testing positive for the virus.
ABC 7 in Chicago reports that while Rev. Jackson, 79, has recovered from COVID-19, his family says the symptoms of his Parkinson’s disease have “become more in focus.” He is now at the Shirley Ryan Ability Lab, according to ABC 7, where he will undergo intensive occupational and physical therapy.
Meanwhile, ABC 7 reports that Jacqueline Jackson, 77, is receiving increased oxygen at Northwestern Memorial’s ICU.
She is still breathing on her own and hasn’t been placed on a ventilator.
More from ABC 7:
Their family praised the medical care Jackson and his wife are receiving, and urged everyone who has not yet been vaccinated to do so “immediately.”
“We continue to receive the love that is being poured out to our family from around the world and it is greatly appreciated, as we express our love and concern for the millions of people who have been victimized by the COVID-19 virus and its variants. We know this is a dangerous disease so please remain prayerful for all of those who are suffering as a result,” the family said in their statement.
Rev. Jackson received his first dose of the Pfizer BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine during a January news conference, and has encouraged Black communities to do the same. A Jackson family spokesman told NBC Chicago that Jacqueline Jackson has not been vaccinated. He declined to elaborate further.
Adidja Palmer, popularly known as Vybz Kartel, shared several profound, life-changing gems in the second part of his interview with Lisa Evers on Fox 5 New York.
The Fox 5 reporter marveled at his ability to keep a positive mental attitude despite being behind bars on a murder charge for almost a decade.
“I have to, if you know someone is trying to destroy you, that’s where they are going to get their pleasure from, you have to be on top of your game, constantly proving them wrong”, he said.
Vybz Kartel said that his haters are as much of an influence to him in prison as his fans are, “that’s kinda how I stay strong for my children and mother”.
When asked about how the king of the dancehall is chosen, Vybz Kartel spoke of having major influence, power and dominance in the dancehall.
“You have to be able to put people on, to destroy people if necessary, musically, that’s what the King is”, he said.
Though the self-proclaimed ‘King of the Dancehall’ is mainly known for being sexually explicit in most of his chart-topping releases, the hit songs ‘Unstoppable’ and ‘Selassie Love We’, and others reinforce what stood out as the climax of the interview.
“When I was growing up, I didn’t know I was going to be rich, I thought rich people were rich, poor people were poor, that was it, it couldn’t change”. He continued to state that a lot of people have that mindset and says that it’s a terrible mindset to have. He is grateful that he was able to change that mindset and for the opportunities, he has gotten. “I have to count my blessings”.
