Kacey Musgraves to receive Vanguard Award at 33rd GLAAD Media Awards

GLAAD has announced that Kacey Musgraves will receive the Vanguard Award at the 33rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles, to be held at the Beverly Hilton on April 2.  GLAAD’s Vanguard Award is presented to allies who have made significant impacts in advocating for LGBTQ people; previous Vanguard Award honorees include Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Kerry Washington, Cher and Antonio Banderas.

Musgraves has vocally supported the LGBTQ community and advanced conversations about LGBTQ acceptance in country music. She recently joined GLAAD and Equality Texas to raise awareness about anti-LGBTQ bills proposed in the Texas state legislature.  GLAAD president and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis shined a light on Musgraves’ efforts, saying: “From speaking out about 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.”

The 33rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards will also feature special guests including JoJo Siwa, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Liv Hewson, Nico Santos, Zeke Smith, “Jeopardy!” champion Amy Schneider and cast members of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
