Beyoncé and Jay-Z enjoyed a night at the Beverly Hilton hotel on Thursday, where they accepted the Vanguard Award at the 30th annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles.
The pair were introduced by a series of presenters, including trans director Janet Mock, stylist Ty Hunter and actress, writer and producer Lena Waithe. Each of the three spoke independently about the artists, before bringing them on to the stage to receive their award.
The rapper wore a pink Frère tux with black pants, while the singer wore a black tuxedo jacket dress. The couple gave an emotional human rights speech with Jay-Z thanking his mother, Gloria Carter, who received a special GLAAD Award last year for her brave lesbian coming out speech and Beyoncé affirming the crowd in their beliefs, making clear that the issues in the LGBTQ community are issues for everyone.
The Vanguard Award is presented to allies who have made a significant difference in promoting acceptance of LGBTQ people. Previous recipients include Jennifer Lopez, Kerry Washington, Cher, Janet Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, Antonio Banderas, Demi Lovato, Whoopi Goldberg, Eric McCormack, and Britney Spears.
