Beyoncé and Jay-Z have had quite a run outside of music recently. From helping kids with scholarships to doing social work for the community, the power couple has proven to be ‘for the people.’ For these acts and more, they are set to receive GLAAD’s (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Vanguard Award at the 30th annual LGBTQ ceremony.

This award is for those people in the entertainment industry “who does not identify as LGBT but who has made a significant difference in promoting equal rights for LGBT people.”

GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis had some words for the couple.

“When Beyoncé and Jay-Z speak, the world becomes inspired and when it comes to LGBTQ people, their voices of acceptance have been heard loud and clear. We could not be prouder to stand with them to send a message of love during the biggest LGBTQ event in the world and to honor their work to bend the arc of justice forward for LGBTQ people, people of color, and marginalized communities everywhere.” She said.

The ceremony is set to take place on March 28th in Los Angeles.
