Grammy-winning country superstar Kacey Musgraves will receive the Vanguard Award at the 33rd annual GLAAD Media Awards next month.
The Vanguard Award is presented to allies who have made a significant difference in promoting the acceptance of LGBTQ people.
Hosts and Series Producers of the HBO series “We’re Here”, Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara, and D.J. “Shangela” Pierce will host the GLAAD Media Awards at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on April 2.
“From speaking out against anti-LGBTQ legislation in her home state of Texas, to raising awareness about bullying affecting LGBTQ youth, to uplifting the work of LGBTQ artists, Kacey continues to raise the bar for what it means to be an authentic ally and to inspire her fans to do the same,” said GLAAD President & CEO Sarah Kate Ellis.
Musgraves has used her platform to loudly speak out in support of the LGBTQ community and advance conversations about LGBTQ acceptance in country music. Most recently, she joined GLAAD and Equality Texas to raise awareness around anti-LGBTQ bills proposed in the Texas state legislature.
