Beyoncé and Jay-Z to Receive Award for LGBTQ Acceptance
Beyoncé and Jay-Z put their love on top for LGBTQ rights and, because of that, will receive GLAAD’s Vanguard Award later this month, according to GLAAD. After accepting the award, the Carters will join the ranks of people such as Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez, who are both past recipients of the award.
This award is presented to people who have made a significant impact in promoting LGBTQ rights and acceptance of LGBTQ people. Both Jay-Z and Beyoncé are advocates for equality, using their global platforms to spread messages of acceptance and tolerance towards LGBTQ people, with Beyoncé denouncing anti-LGBTQ laws that are present in states such as North Carolina as well as celebrating nationwide marriage equality, saying “Everyone has the right to love who they love.”
