Madonna devoted her GLAAD Award to the memory of her friends who died of AIDS


Madonna gave an emotional speech upon receiving the Advocate for Change Award from LGBT+ media monitoring group GLAAD. The ceremony took place in New York City on Saturday, May 4th. Madonna said in her speech that she made a decision to become an LGBT ally because she was tired of stigma around HIV\AIDS when so many wonderful people she knew in person were dying from it. Madonna, who was introduced to the stage by Anderson Cooper, Mykki Blanco and Rosie O’Donnell, remembered how she first felt when she was introduced to the members of the queer community. They gave her so much love and support, like a family, like this is where she belonged. And since then she is trying to9 give this love back top them with her creativity and social activism. “The first gay man I ever met was named Christopher Flynn. He was my ballet teacher in high school and he was the first person that believed in me, that made me feel special as a dancer, as an artist and as a human being. I know this sounds trivial and superficial, but he was the first man to tell me I was beautiful,” she said
