Pop’s out and proud stars were some of the biggest winners.

The British LGBT Awards were held in London tonight to celebrate the outstanding contributions of the LGBT+ community both in the UK and around the world.

Years & Years – fronted by singer Olly Alexander – won the award for Music Artist of the year, as they continued to take 2016 by storm with more singles from their debut LP “Communion” and the one-off “Bridget Jones” soundtrack single “Meteorite”.

Fifth Harmony’s very own Lauren Jauregui, who came out as bisexual in an open letter last November following the U.S. election result, also won an award.

The singer won the Adidas sponsored LGBT+ Celebrity award and made an acceptance speech via broadcast as she couldn’t be in the UK to attend the ceremony.

“Thank you so much for this award, it’s so crazy. Thank you to all of my Harmonizers and anybody who voted,” she said. “I hope you guys continue to love yourselves and to grow and to be yourself unapologetically. No matter what the world says or what anybody tells you, just be happy with yourself. Own it and be who you are.”

Watch her full acceptance speech below.

Congrats to Lauren and Years & Years!
