Demi Lovato takes Danica Roem, first openly transgender state legislator, to AMAs

Lovato walked the red carpet with Danica Roem, who was elected the first openly transgender state legislator earlier this month.

"I think what Danica has done is just completely inspirational and she's a trailblazer", Lovato said.

When asked about her coming inauguration as a member of the House of Delegates on January 10, Roem told E! she was overwhelmed by the support from Lovato and others. The superstar, who stunned in a black gown, brought Danica Roem with her to the award show as part of GLAAD's Together movement, which calls on communities to unite and speak out in favour of equality.

"We connected because I heard her story", Lovato told E!

Roem recently became the first transgender state legislator in the US and she was rewarded by a big night out in Los Angeles.

People magazine reported that Lovato was inspired by Roem's win and invited Roem to the awards to be her date.

"She's really able to give a lot of voice to people who need a champion, who need someone to basically publicly say on a national stage what it is that they're feeling", Roem said on the red carpet. "To be a state legislator as a trans woman is groundbreaking and incredible and I have so much respect for her".

The singer then began performing her successful single, belting high notes as a crowd of female dancers surrounded the stage. "Demi Lovato continues her legacy of raising the bar for entertaining audiences around the world and for spotlighting social issues that need the most attention".

"Some fans are saying that I've inspired them to either get over certain struggles in their lives they've been through - whether it's bullying [or] a mental illness, she said".
