Madonna will be honored at the 30th annual GLAAD Media Awards for a lifetime of accelerating acceptance of the L-G-B-T-Q community.
The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer advocacy group announced Tuesday it will present Madonna with its Advocate for Change Award.
The 60-year-old singer is the second person and first woman to receive the award that honors a person who, through their work, changed the game for LGBTQ people.
Madonna’s support for the community dates as far back as the early 1980’s and she continues to be pillar for equal rights to this day.
Madonna will be presented the award on May 4 in New York.
