The GLAAD Media Awards were held at the Beverly Hilton and celebrities such as Halle Berry, Ryan Murphy, and Jim Parsons all showed up, but it was Britney Spears who made the biggest impact of the night.

 

The 36-year-old singer was presented with the Vanguard Award, an honor given to media professionals that promote equality and acceptance of LGBTQ people.

 

Ricky Martin praised her before introducing her to the stage, saying, "She could be one of those stars with a huge LGBTQ following who does nothing and says nothing. Instead, she uses her platform to remind audiences around the globe that intolerance is unacceptable."

I feel like our society has always put such an emphasis on whats normal and to be different is unusual or seen as strange. But to be accepted unconditionally and to be able to express yourself as an individual through art is such a blessing.
