Lena Waithe Accepts the Trailblazer Award at MTV Movie & TV Awards 2018

Lena Waithe appears on stage to accept the special Trailblazer Award at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards, which was taped on Saturday (June 16) at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif.

The 34-year-old Master of None and Ready Player One star was presented the award by her friend Common.

Lena dedicated the award to the subjects of the movie Paris is Burning.

“Tonight, I want to share this award with them. I want to do what we as a society should have done a long time ago, and that’s give them the glory and the shine they deserve,” Lena said.

Paris is Burning focused on the LGBTQ community’s ball culture in 1980s Harlem, which is also being explored in the new series Pose.

FYI: Lena is wearing Hudson jeans.
