New York — Madonna will be honoured at the 30th annual GLAAD Media Awards for a lifetime of accelerating acceptance of the LGBTQ community.

The 60-year-old singer is the second person and first woman to receive the award that honours a person who, through their work, changed the game for LGBTQ people.

In a statement, GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis says Madonna's "music and art have been life-saving outlets for LGBTQ people over the years."

The award will be presented on 4 May in New York.

The awards honour media for fair, accurate and inclusive representations of LGBTQ people and issues.
