Beyoncé and Anti-Gay Lyric Writing Husband JAY-Z To Receive 2019 GLAAD Media Award

Beyoncé and Anti-Gay Lyric Writing Husband JAY-Z To Receive 2019 GLAAD Media Award

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. 

Beyonce Denounces North Carolina’s HB2 Hate Law AFTER Performing in NC

Beyonce Does Not Cacel North Carolina Concerts

From Beyonce’s website:

North Carolina has been drawing the attention of the masses for new legislation that blocks cities and local governments from passing anti-discrimination measures that could protect gay and transgender people.

It all began earlier this year when Charlotte passed a decree expanding North Carolina’s anti-discrimination laws allowing LGBT people protection in places of public accommodation. The ordinance, which was set to go into effect on April 1st, would allow transgender people to use the bathrooms of the gender they identify as, amongst other progressive rights.

Rather than accepting the progression in LGBT rights, that same night, legislators returned to the state house to overrule the ordinance that would ban discrimination against LGBT people. At a special session, North Carolina’s General Assembly proposed and passed the House Bill 2 (HB2) — what has now come to be known as the “Bathroom Bill.”

As The Formation World Tour makes its stop in the Tar Heel state in the midst of such a controversial time, we think it is important for us to bring attention to those who are committed to being good and carrying on the message of equality in this core of controversy.

Among the many organizations doing the good work to get this bill overturned, there is Equality NC, a local organization dedicated to securing equal rights and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) North Carolinians.

To accomplish these goals, Equality NC tirelessly lobbies the North Carolina General Assembly, executive branch, and local governments, broadcast LGBT news, stories and content, and mobilize our communities on issues that matter, including marriage equality, parental rights, inclusive anti-bullying policies, employment discrimination, hate violence, privacy rights, sexuality education, adoption, domestic partnerships, and HIV/AIDS.

Learn more about how you can support Equality NC by donating, volunteering, becoming an ambassador, attending an event, or simply spreading the word!

In other words: Nothing was going to come between this particular consumer product and a sale. But good luck!

Sour lemonade.

Beyonce Speaks Out For Same-Sex Marriage: “We all should be able to put a ring on it”

Over the past week during the initial Supreme Court hearings regarding the Prop 8 and DOMA cases calling into the question of banning same sex marriage is unconstitutional, many celebrities voiced their support. We knew we have always had the support of some that spoke up like  music icon Madonna and NFL star from the Baltimore Ravens Brendon Ayanbadejo.

But with others that are given high social status we are not always so sure until recently, as is the case with Beyonce, who finally spoke up in support for same sex marriage. The multifaceted musician, actress, and business mogul took the opportunity to let her fans know that it is time for us as a society to ensure that we all have the right to love whomever we want:

This does come as a big relief to many of her fans that are LGBT and have wondered for so long why she chose to not vocally state what her opinion was on the issue. Coupled with the fact that her husband, Jay-Z has expressed numerous times his support of marriage equality, alongside President Obama last year, Beyonce’s silence did make some wonder if she did not share the same view.

Some believed it was out of fear of how some of her fanbase would react to her supporting same sex marriage. But that would be problematic as a sizable portion of her fans are gay men. Yet Beyonce has never been an artist to give too much credence to the opinion of others, no matter how respect and appreciation she may have for their support so it’s reasonable to believe that this latest gesture is genuine. .

But in typical, methodically honed timing, the triple threat decided to vocalize her opinion in her own way and own time. And that is why we love her. As it should be for anyone, they should be able to express how they feel in whatever way they see fit. Can’t help but respect that.

First Listen: Liza Minnelli DESTROYS Beyoncé’s "Single Ladies – Put A Ring On It" For "Sex And The City 2" (Audio)

In theory Liza Minnelli singing “Single Ladies” in Sex and the City 2 should be the gayest thing ever.  The only problem: it’s bad.  Really bad. We can’t possibly blame Liza, so who’s fault is it? But who? Someone must pay!
