It was a star-studded night in the Big Apple as celebrities gathered at the New York Hilton Midtown for the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards.

The organization, which honors “media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community,” hosts awards shows in both Los Angeles and New York. The L.A. show occurred on March 28 and honored Beyoncé and Jay-Z with the Vanguard Award, where the “Formation” singer gave a heartfelt and tearful speech about her uncle who died of HIV.

Saturday night was New York’s turn for GLAAD’s annual event. Madonnawas bestowed with the Advocate for Change Award while Andy Cohen received the Vito Russo Award. His longtime friend Sarah Jessica Parker presented Cohen with the honors.

GLAAD’s President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis explained in a statement in February why Madonna was the ideal choice for the Advocate for Change Award this year.

“Madonna always has and always will be the LGBTQ community’s greatest ally and it is only fitting to honor and celebrate our biggest advocate at GLAAD’s biggest event ever,” Ellis said.

Ellis continued, “From the HIV crisis to international LGBTQ issues, she fearlessly pushes for a world where LGBTQ people are accepted. Her music and art have been life-saving outlets for LGBTQ people over the years and her affirming words and actions have changed countless hearts and minds.”

Madonna made history by receiving this award. She became the first woman ever and only the second person to be honored with it. Bill Clinton was the first in 2013.

Cohen’s achievement is just as important. The Vito Russo Award is given to an open LGBTQ person in the media who has helped bring about more acceptance to the community. GLAAD wrote in a statement that Cohen “consistently speaks out on LGBTQ issues on the show including marriage equality, anti-transgender legislation, and hate violence against LGBTQ people.” 

Shangela hosted the show, whose attendees included Samantha Bee, Rachel Brosnahan, Don Lemon, Gus Kenworthy, Adam Rippon, Jonathan Van Ness and more.
