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. 

GLAAD Bashes Hugh Hefner After His Death: He Should Not Be Celebrated

GLAAD (formerly the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) which was originally founded by gay activist and hero Vito Russo to monitor LGBT representation in media is jumping the shark once again. This time by attacking sexual freedom liberator  and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner after his death.

Hefner, who died Wednesday at 91 of natural causes, has been praised in some circles for his early and steadfast support of LGBTQ causes. In 1955, he published a story by Charles Beaumont that envisioned a world where gay people were the majority; after facing pushback, Hefner said: “If it was wrong to persecute heterosexuals in a homosexual society, then the reverse was wrong, too.

Hefner also wrote a Playboy editorial in 2012 advocating for same-sex marriage. “No one should have to subjugate their religious freedom, and no one should have their personal freedoms infringed,” he wrote in his conclusion. “This is America and we must protect the rights of all Americans.”

But ” Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD,  pushed back at the praise of hefner in a statement saying:

It’s alarming how media is attempting to paint Hugh Hefner as a pioneer or social justice activist, because nothing could be further from reality. Hefner was a not a visionary. He was a misogynist who built an empire on sexualizing women and mainstreaming stereotypes that caused irreparable damage to women’s rights and our entire culture.”

Ellis who had no real LGBT activism work under her belt before becoming the president of GLAAD holds degrees in Sociology and minor in Women’s Studies from Russell Sage College  and is mostly known  most widely known for launching and turning around media brands within magazines such as New YorkInStyleReal Simple, and Vogue.

Ellis’ current salary at GLAAD is . $260,961.00 a year.
