The media-advocacy organization GLAAD announced recipients for 15 of this year's 27 categories for the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards on March 27.

Beyonce and JAY-Z received the Vanguard Award. HIV/AIDS advocate Morris Singletary; writer, producer and director Janet Mock; stylist Ty Hunter; and Emmy and GLAAD Media Award-winning writer, producer and actor Lena Waithe presented them with the honor.

During JAY-Z's speech he praised his mother, who came out as a lesbian on the track "Smile," from his album 4:44, Deadline.com noted. "I get to follow in her footsteps for spreading love and acceptance and her beautiful speech at the end of the song—and for allowing me to tell her story," he said.

Beyonce said, in part, "Change starts with supporting people closest to you."

Also, Sean Hayes received the Stephen F. Kolzak Award from Oscar-winning actress Allison Janney at the star-studded ceremony at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.

Celebrity guests included Gwyneth Paltrow, Jamie Lee Curtis, the cast of Queer Eye, Meghan Trainor, Hayley Kiyoko, Ross Mathews, Adam Lambert, Meghan Trainor, Michelle Kwan, Gina Gershon and Jennifer Tilly ( in a Bound reunion ), Nico Santos, Imagine Dragon's Dan Reynolds and many more.

Some of the category winners included the movie Love, Simon; the documentaries Believer and TransMilitary; Variety magazine; the reality program Queer Eye; the comedy series Vida; and the video game The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset.

The GLAAD Awards will continue in New York City on Saturday, May 4.

See GLAAD.org for more about the awards gala.
