I honestly never think about Beyonce and Jay-Z being huge LGBTQ+ allies, but they really are. Jay-Z has spoken more in recent years about his mother’s journey as a gay woman, and Beyonce is of course surrounded by gay men and women, and she has a huge LGBTQ fanbase. So it’s not surprising that GLAAD would want to give them their Vanguard Awards. I guess the surprise was that Bey and Him showed up to the show and gave beautiful and emotional speeches. Beyonce also published some photos of their ensembles and their Vanguard awards, since they didn’t walk the carpet or anything.
It’s just a really nice speech from both of them, and I like that Bey notes that Jay is doing good work now to destigmatize LGBTQ people and acceptance in the hip-hop community. While the official GLAAD video edits out part of their speeches, there were fan-made videos from inside the awards show. So we know that Bey also made a reference to taking that ass to Red Lobster:

Oh, and Beyonce & Jay-Z LOVED the lip-sync medley tribute from Shangela!! This is a poor quality video but it’s the best one I could find.
Shangela slays a Beyoncé medley – in front of Queen Bey herself – at the #GLAADAwards (and everyone’s kinda shook 🌈✨)https://t.co/KOTKlYinEG

Jay has tiny legs.
The photos they post…they just come off as really full of themselves.
True but maybe that’s more authentic than the celebs who DO NOT look full of themselves in posted pix haha
She looks amazing here, I’d wear all of that
Yup. She’s moving into eccentric territory, and I don’t mean that in a good way.
I like his hair like that!
Me too! It’s great.
She looks awful… is it just her hair or did she do something to her face?
Maybe she did but I think she is just aging. She’s always had a face that looks ‘mature’.
THAT’S your idea of awful?? Lol…okay.
LOL. I would love to look that “awful.”
Not “awful” at all
and also I think you missed the point
but sure, criticize her appearance
One thing really has nothing to do with the other. She can do a nice thing and not look great. They’re not mutually exclusive. But y’know, to each their own
Hopefully I’ll look this terrible at 37.
I thought it was her mother!
As did I.
I LOVE that they didn’t go to collect their Grammy but they showed up for their Brit Award and THIS….
Yes me too!!
Don’t like her outfit but please give me the keys to her hair closet.
