NEW YORK - Madonna will be honoured at the 30th annual GLAAD Media Awards for a lifetime of accelerating acceptance of the LGBTQ community.

The lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer advocacy group announced Tuesday it will present Madonna with its advocate for change award. 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 May 4 in New York.

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