GLAAD has just announced that their Vanguard Media Award at the upcoming 30th annual GLAAD will be presented to Beyoncéand JAY-Z.
The Vangard Media Award is presented to “allies who have made a significant difference in promoting acceptance of LGBTQ people.”
Now we all know that Beyonce is a tireless LGBT advocate and has stood up numerous times over issues that affect the LGBT community. (SNORT) And JAY-Z has written some of the most pro-LGBT rap lyrics and music to date. Including some of these most memorable lines.
In his 2001 song “Heart of the City (Ain’t No Love),” the GLAAD recognized pro-gay singer raps:
Young faggots spittin’ at me, young rappers gettin’ at me
My nigga Big predicted this s**t exactly
“Mo’ Money, Mo’ Problems” – gotta move carefully
‘Cause faggots hate when you gettin’ money like athletes
Jay-Z also took a stand for ‘equality’ in a toe-tapper called, “La-La-La (Excuse Me Miss Again),” in which he sings:
Now I ain’t down with who like me or who like you
That’s gay, I ain’t into liking dudes no way
He also bravely took a stand for the gay community in his tune, “22 Two’s,” :
Too many faggot niggas clockin’ my spendin’
Exercisin’ your gay-like minds like Richard Simmons
GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis had the audacity yo call Beyonce and Jay-Z “global icons and passionate defenders of human rights and acceptance for all people,” in a press statement, adding, “When Beyoncé and JAY-Z speak, the world becomes inspired and when it comes to LGBTQ people, their voices of acceptance have been heard loud and clear.”
Sarah Kate Ellis should hang her head in shame and resign or have her over-paid ass kicked to the street.
Poor Vito Russo is rolling in his grave over what has happened to the once noble organization that he founded.
