GLAAAD annually honors public figures who contribute to the further acceptance and embracing of the LGBTQ community at their GLAAAD Media Awards.
This year they are honoring arguably music’s biggest power couple with one of the night’s most prestigious awards.
Jay Z and Beyoncé will receive the Vanguard Award, typically given to LGBTQ allies who have made a significant difference in promoting acceptance.
GLAAD’s president says the choice was easy because, “When Beyoncé and JAY-Z speak, the world becomes inspired and when it comes to LGBTQ people, their voices of acceptance have been heard loud and clear.”
The GLAAD Media Awards take place March 28th in LA.
