MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - International superstar Gloria Estefan received a high honor from a national LGBTQ organization, Saturday night.
The South Florida-based artist was celebrated at the 2017 National LGBTQ Task Force Gala, which was held at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
Estefan was presented with the National Leadership Award for her longtime and vocal support of marriage equality. “I’m honored. I really am,” she said. “All I’ve done all my life is just stand up for people, and to receive an award for that is just amazing. I’m just very, very thrilled and honored to be here.”
Recently, Estefan and her husband, Emilio Estefan, produced an LGBTQ-themed movie titled “A Change of Heart.” It had its world premiere at this year’s Miami Film Festival back in March.
