Zendaya to Receive Gamechanger Award at 2017 GLSEN Respect Awards

Zendaya is an outspoken advocate for women, POC, and LGBTQ rights, and she frequently speaks out against violations to those rights on Twitter and Instagram.

Now, she is being honored for using her platform for good at the 2017 GLSEN Respect Awards with the GameChanger Award.

“GLSEN is honored to recognize Zendaya with the Gamechanger Award for her commitment to social justice,” Eliza Byard, Executive Director of GLSEN, said in a statement.

“This award was created to spotlight the next generation of leaders, and Zendaya, unafraid to raise her voice on a host of issues affecting LGBTQ students and other marginalized communities, clearly exemplifies that leadership.”

GLSEN is the leading education organization creating safe schools for LGBTQ youth.

Considering Z‘s recent 2017 Teen Choice Awards speech, outspokenness about Black Women’s Equal Pay Day, and contract negotiations for K.C. Undercover, we can’t think of a better person for the award.

The gala will be held October 20th at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in L.A.

Congrats, Zendaya!
