London: Pop star Pink is set to be awarded for her work with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community at a glitzy gala in Washington, D.C.

The ‘So What’ hitmaker will be the toast of the Human Rights Campaign’s 14th annual ‘National Dinner’ at the weekend.

She will be presented with the special ‘Ally for Equality Award’ by veteran star Bette Midler.

"This has been a remarkable year in the fight for LGBT equality, but there is much work left to be done. The ‘National Dinner’ will highlight our accomplishments and inspire us to keep up the fight until we have achieved full equality under the law," the Daily Star quoted Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese as saying.
