Beyoncé and Jay-Z stole the show at the GLAAD Media Awards when they received the Vanguard Award in honor of the couple’s support for the LGBTQ community. And Queen Bey got super emotional.
The legend dedicated the honor to her uncle Johnny, whom she described as “the most fabulous gay man I have ever met.” Last year, GLAAD honored Jay-Z’s mom, Gloria Carter, who came out as a lesbian on Jay-Z’s Grammy-nominated album, 4:44.
The rapper said of his mom: “I get to follow in her footsteps of spreading love and acceptance, and [thank her] for her beautiful speech at the end of the song, ‘Smile,’ and for her allowing me to tell her story,” he said.
We’re not crying. You’re crying!
