    Lady Gaga leads the nominations for the 2017 NatWest British LGBT Awards

    The 30-year-old musician - who identifies as bisexual - has long been a supporter of the LGBT community, and has landed herself a nomination for LGBT Celebrity of the Year at this year's glitzy ceremony which will take place on May 12.


    The 'Million Reasons' hitmaker will need to fight of fierce competition from Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander - whose band are also nominated for Music Artist of the Year - as well as model Cara Delevingne, actress Laverne Cox and Fifth Harmony singer Lauren Jauregui.

    Elsewhere, British royal Prince William will go head-to-head against the likes of TV presenter James Corden, musician Ariana Grande, actress Emma Watson, and author J.K. Rowling in the Celebrity Straight Ally category, which praises stars for their support toward the LGBT community, despite not being a member themselves.

    Saara Aalto - who finished in second place on British singing competition 'The X Factor' last year - and former Union J singer George Shelley are both up for the Celebrity Rising Star award, which will see them battle it out against 'Hollyoaks' actress Annie Wallace, radio presenter Stephanie Hirst, and 'Britain's Got Talent' contestant Calum Scott.

    The Broadcaster or Journalist of the Year category features the likes of former 'X Factor' sensation and 'This Morning' presenter Rylan Clark-Neal, BBC Sports presenter Clare Balding, former 'Great British Bake Off' host Sue Perkins, and talk show host Graham Norton.

    Meanwhile, Adele will face Elton John, Fifth Harmony, Madonna, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Troy Sivan, Tegan and Sara, Kele Okereke, and Years & Years in the Music Artist of the Year category.

    British LGBT Awards founder Sarah Garrett MBE said:

    "The 2017 NatWest British LGBT Awards shortlist features inspirational people who have and continue to use their platform to promote and enhance LGBT rights all over the world.

    "All nominees are absolutely deserving of their place on the shortlist but it is now down to the public to choose their winners ahead of the ceremony which is set to be the biggest yet when it takes place in London on 12 May."

    The ceremony will also pay tribute to the late George Michael, who passed away on Christmas Day (25.12.16).
