Madonna is set to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the GLAAD Media Awards.
The 60-year-old is going to be honoured for her advocacy for the LGBTQ community.
According to E! News, the GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis said: “Madonna always has and always will be the LGBTQ community’s greatest ally and it is only fitting to honor and celebrate our biggest advocate at GLAAD’s biggest event ever.”
“From the HIV crisis to international LGBTQ issues, she fearlessly pushes for a world where LGBTQ people are accepted.”
The president acknowledged how Madonna’s music has helped people within the community, she said: “Her music and art have been life-saving outlets for LGBTQ people over the years and her affirming words and actions have changed countless hearts and minds.”
The singer has run AIDS benefit concerts, created a benefit dance marathon and continuously spoke out about the LGBTQ community.
The prestigious award has only ever been given to one other person, President Bill Clinton, who was honored at the 24th Annual GLAAD Awards in 2013.
