Beyonce & Jay-Z Emotionally Speak Out for LGBTQ Acceptance at GLAAD Media Awards 2019 - Watch!

Beyoncé and Jay-Z are speaking out in support of the LGBTQ community.

The superstar couple accepted the Vanguard Award at the 30th annual GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Thursday night (March 28) in Los Angeles.

The Vanguard Award is presented to allies who have made a significant difference in promoting acceptance of LGBTQ people.

“I want to dedicate this award to my uncle Johnny, the most fabulous gay man I’ve ever known, who helped raise me and my sister,” Beyonce emotionally announced.

“He lived his truth. He was brave and unapologetic during a time when this country wasn’t as accepting. And witnessing his battle with HIV was one of the most painful experiences I’ve ever lived. I’m hopeful that his struggle served to open pathways for other young people to live more freely. LGBTQI rights are human rights.”
