“I want to start by saying that every award that I ever win will always be first and foremost dedicated to the queer community at large,” she said while onstage at Microsoft Theater. “You guys have carved out such a space for me to be myself and to write music about it, and I’ve never felt safer or more loved and more supported, and I hope I can give you some semblance of that same feeling in my music.

“On the heels of the tragedy that happened at Club Q in Colorado Springs, I want to remind everyone how important queer visibility is, and how important our community is,” she added. “I want to remind you that you are made absolutely right, and you are so loved and so held, and I want to thank you for supporting me. Thank you for holding the space – I’m holding it for you too.”

The Club Q attack took place on Saturday night (November 19) and left five dead and 25 injured, according to CNN.
