Jennifer Lopez has been honoured at an event celebrating positive portrayals of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community in the media.

"If I do anything that makes one child out there feel empowered... my dream has come true," she told an audience at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

The singer and actress received the Vanguard award, an accolade previously bestowed upon Cher, Liza Minnelli and Dame Elizabeth Taylor.
