Beyoncé, Jay-Z to Be Honored at the 30th Annual GLAAD Awards

Previous honorees include Britney Spears, Kerry Washington, Cher, Elizabeth Taylor, and Eric McCormack. by Lamar Dawson 6h ago

This year’s GLAAD Media Awards will recognize Beyoncé and Jay-Z for being longtime allies of supporters of the LGBTQ community, according to a just-released statement from the media advocacy organization.

“Beyoncé and Jay-Z are global icons and passionate defenders of human rights and acceptance for all people,” said GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis. “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. We could not be prouder to stand with them to send a message of love during the biggest LGBTQ event in the world and to honor their work to bend the arc of justice forward for LGBTQ people, people of color, and marginalized communities everywhere.”

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for Roc Nation Bey and Jay will receive GLAAD’s Vanguard Award, which is presented to allies who have made a significant difference in promoting acceptance of LGBTQ people. Previous Vanguard Award honorees include Jennifer Lopez, Kerry Washington, Cher, Janet Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, Antonio Banderas, Demi Lovato, Whoopi Goldberg, Eric McCormack, and Britney Spears.

Last year, Jay-Z received a GLAAD Special Recognition Award for his song and music video, “Smile,” featuring his mother Gloria Carter who used the song to come out as a lesbian. The lyrics and video poignantly share the powerful story of Ms. Gloria Carter, who accepted the GLAAD Media Award from journalist Robin Roberts.

Jay has featured queer people in his other music videos including an appearance by Janet Mock “Family Feud” which opens with a quote from James Baldwin. Jay also famously supported the passage of marriage equality, noting it was “the right thing to do as a human being.”

Besides providing the gays with a bounty of bops to twerk to in dance clubs across the planet, Queen Bey has used her platform to champion LGBTQ equality, acceptance, and visibility. She’s spoken out against discriminatory laws in North Carolina, celebrated the passage of marriage equality, and including LGBTQ in her music videos and campaigns including her video for “All Night” and her Ivy Park athleisure line which featured Laverne Cox as one of the featured models.

The 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards honor media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues. Events will be held in Los Angeles on Thursday, March 28 and in New York City on Saturday, May 4.

GLAAD previously announced that Sean Hayes will receive the Stephen F. Kolzak Award during the Los Angeles event. Ross Mathews will host the event and special guests will include the cast of Netflix’s Queer Eye, Allison Janney (I, Tonya), Nico Santos (Superstore, Crazy Rich Asians), Jameela Jamil (The Good Place), Shangela (A Star is Born, RuPaul’s Drag Race) and Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons.

GLAAD previously announced 151 nominees for the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in 27 categories, including an inaugural category for Outstanding Video Game, along with Kids & Family Programming, Comedy and Drama Series, Documentary, Reality Series, Music Artist, Comic Book, print, broadcast, and online news, and five Spanish-language categories. For the first time ever, the GLAAD Media Awards’ Outstanding Film – Limited Release category expanded from five to ten nominees as a result of a welcomed increase in fair, accurate, and inclusive LGBTQ images in film.

Bought and paid for. His mother finally came out so now he’s a champion for gay rights? The same way she is now an avowed feminist? And wasn’t she an on the record homophobe early in her career? He is an Elmer Fudd sounding motherfucker. And she’s just country bumpkin stupid. Fuck the both of them. With a Made in China gold-plated dildo.

Do not support GLAAD. There are actual good people in the world who do good things for gays and lesbians. These two are not those people. Nothing but a PR stunt for attention. Pathetic.

So Jay-Z never used "faggot" in his songs? I thought that was table stakes for street cred.

I guess since Beyonce has made a bunch of songs that cater to women, we as gay men are supposed to consider her a gay rights champion...ya, not happening.

But yes, it would be nice for GLAAD to recognize actual gay people for a change.

These are both transsies. Jaycee is a ftm and Beyonce is mtf. This is part of their Luminati agenda. Seriously. They’re trans.

Yes, R27. It's simple. Bait donors with high-priced celebrity meet & greets at the pre-dinner VIP reception. $5,000 a pop.

Other donors pay $10,000 for a table of ten, send their token gay employees to sit at the table, get a full-page ad in the program, and a shiny award to display in the corporate headquarters.

I attended a few GLAAD awards shows years back (on someone else's dime) and it was tacky, bloated, self-serving and too long.

Does Gaga have lyrics like these?

“What you gay? Nigga Jay straight like Indian hair” – From “2 Many Hoes”

“And since you infatuated with sayin’ tha gay shit” – From “Super Ugly”

“Had niggas mad for real like ‘I wish he was gay'”- From “Hey Papi

“Hate a nigga like that faggot, get your own”- From “Lucky Me”

“That’s gay, I ain’t into liking dudes no way”- From “La La La (Excuse Me Again)”

The rumor is that Jay enjoys being a drug dealer since It gives him access to big celebrities. He knows that he’ll never get arrested.

You’re more likely to be invited to spend an all-expenses covered week on ‘Mr. X’s private island if you bring a steady supply of high quality drugs for the host and his other guests.

Beyonce barely even recognizes that gay people exist, much less her gay fans. Frankly, I think she's slightly homophobic in private.

Jay's mother is a lesbian, so I guess they're giving him an award for that.

by Anonymousreply 5103/13/2019

I don't think Beyonce is homophobic, she has worked with many gay people (designers, male dancers, lesbian musicians, etc.).

As someone above said, GlAAD is now only trans and drag queens anyway.

The name itself...GLAAD.... is hypocrisy at its height...with all their trans rhetoric it amounts to gay cleansing....and they dont care. The narcissists who support them dont care as long as they receive adoration in the form of a meaningless award.

Jay Z's mom is a lesbian.

He had a song called Smile on his last album about supporting his mom and how Love is love.

It is total BS. He only did that song for political points. He used to use homophobic lyrics in the past.

Beyonce is a dingbat who has never gone to bat for LGBT either. In fact, she said something homophobic about the VMA Madonna/Britney kiss once upon a time. She said that it was against her religion. Her family were also known Republicans in Texas.

Actually, I would rather Kanye West get a GLAAD award over Beyonce/Jay. He's said alot of shit but he's never said anything homophobic in his lyrics like Jay Z and Eminem. In fact, I think he was one the first to openly support gay rights in hip hop back in like 2005. He supported hip hop taking a more metrosexual fashion style. He got raked over the coals for this and got called Gay Fish by South Park.

R60, yes and her uncle was left to die alone in hospice care and rarely got visited by family.

She's lying

GLAAD are like those gays desperate to be liked by straights. Not my cup of tea. “I mean, he played a gay guy in a movie, and he’s straight” or “He is accepting of his wife’s friend who is gay” or “He said something nice about gay people in an interview, once” Puh-leeze!

I like Beyoncé and Jay-Z, btw. He, especially, stuck his neck out taking a stand against homophobia in what is still a bigoted genre because his mother came out as lesbian.
