Beyoncé and Jay-Z to receive LGBT ALLY award

GLAAD is proud to honor Beyoncé and JAY-Z together with the Vanguard Award for their LGBTQ allyship at the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles on Thursday, March 28!

The 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards honor media for fair, accurate, and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues. Beyoncé and JAY-Z will receive GLAAD’s Vanguard Award, which is presented to allies who have made a significant difference in promoting acceptance of LGBTQ people. Beyoncé and JAY-Z are longtime allies and supporters of the LGBTQ community who use their global platforms to share messages that inspire and change the world for the better.

Events will be held in Los Angeles on Thursday, March 28 and in New York City on Saturday, May 4, where Madonna will receive the Advocate for Change Award. 

Beyoncé has spoken out against laws that would discriminate against LGBTQ people in states including North Carolina and celebrated the passage of marriage equality nationwide, saying that "everyone has the right to love who they love.”  She has spoken out loudly for LGBTQ youth and told her followers on social media that “LGBTQ students need to know we support them.” Beyoncé has included LGBTQ people and couples in videos for ‘Formation’ and ‘All Night’ and dedicated her performance of ‘Halo’ to the victims and survivors of the Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting during “The Formation World Tour.” Ivy Park, her athleisure clothing line, proudly showcased transgender actress Laverne Cox as one of the featured faces in one of the brand’s promos.  

JAY-Z received a GLAAD Special Recognition Award last year 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-Z has featured LGBTQ people in his art including an appearance by LGBTQ leader Janet Mock in the video for ‘Family Feud,’ which opens with a quote from iconic gay writer James Baldwin. JAY-Z also famously supported the passage of marriage equality, noting it was “the right thing to do as a human being.

She shouldn't, given that she's bi and not a "queer ally" in the way people use that phrase.

I’m not sure if I’m just not getting this, but why should people receive an award for basic human kindness? Shouldn’t we all be allies?

Before you guys hop on the hate train, listen to "Smile" by Jay Z. It made me cry when I first heard it. The song is proof that the simple, brave act of coming out can change people's hearts in a deeply fundamental way. The song is a HUGE leap forward for hip hop + lgbtq+ community. Let's move forward with them and congratulate their efforts. 

Bust the rearview and fire up the jets, 'cause it's you and me

People use the term "ally" to denote a straight cis person that supports queer rights.
