Madonna to Receive Advocate for Change Award at GLAAD Media Awards 2019

Madonna is set to receive the Advocate for Change Award at the 2019 GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on May 4, 2019.

Madonna always has and always will be the LGBTQ community’s greatest ally and it is only fitting to honor and celebrate our biggest advocate at GLAAD’s biggest event ever,” GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said in a statement. “From the HIV crisis to international LGBTQ issues, she fearlessly pushes for a world where LGBTQ people are accepted. Her music and art have been life-saving outlets for LGBTQ people over the years and her affirming words and actions have changed countless hearts and minds.”

Madonna is the second person ever to receive this award, and the first woman to be awarded the honor. Bill Clinton previously won in 2013. Congrats to Madonna!
