Kylie Minogue is giving props to her queer fans after her latest achievement!

The Australian singer-songwriter, 55, toasted her supporters on Sunday during a conversation with E!’s Live from the Red Carpet host Laverne Cox during the 66th annual Grammy Awards — just hours after taking home the trophy for best pop dance recording.

"I would say thank you for being with me for such a long time now, through thick and thin," Minogue said when asked what message she had for her fans in the LGBTQ+ community.

"We ride the highs, the lows and the in-betweens, and to know that we've got each other's backs and this feels like the start of the next era."

Minogue had previously earned a Grammy in 2004, when she scored the trophy for best dance recording for “Come Into My World."

Back in September, she caught up with PEOPLE about her decades in the industry shortly after the release of her 16th studio album. As she explained at the time, she "didn't even know I was going to fully commit to another album" after 2020's Disco, before deciding to "just go in and have fun" during her latest LP's studio sessions.

"I remember a few years ago being in a lot of interview situations where I would be asked, 'What age do you think it is still OK to be in pop music, or to be sexy in pop?' It was really awkward, and I felt like I had to justify my presence there," Minogue said in September.

"So, what's happening now very organically, I'm talking about it with you because it's happened. I've not been out there flying that flag," the star added. "Of course, it's a great moment for me — but it's a great moment for other artists, women particularly, who have this kind of prejudice or bias against them. So, like I say, I didn't set out to do this. I've also been the youngest kid where I had to fight to be heard or just occupy my space."
