VIDEO EXCLUSIVE: Beth Ditto Being Fabulous at the GLAAD Awards LA 2013

It’s a given that we’re all collectively in love with Beth Ditto – outspoken member of the LGBTQ community, feminist, style icon, and rockstar frontwoman of Gossip – yes? Excellent, then we can all gather round our computer screens and watch this video exclusive of Ditto’s speech at the 2013 Los Angeles GLAAD Awards and be happy and excited together!

If you need any more incentive to watch this speech, you should know it includes a funny anecdote about Mr. Bill Clinton, an empowering disregard for rules and prompters, and an adorable, giddy mention of Ditto’s wedding plans with fiance, Kristin Ogata! So many awesome feelings.

“And I’d like to say that I’m very in love with my girlfriend and have always wanted to get married, and we are getting married, because we are ready, because the United States of America is ready.”

And that’s that. If Beth Ditto says it’s true, then you better believe it.

Ugh so cute.
