GLAAD is set to honor the musical icon Madonna with the Advocate for Change Award at the 30th Annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on May 4, Deadline noted.

"From the HIV crisis to international LGBTQ issues, she fearlessly pushes for a world where LGBTQ people are accepted," said GLAAD President/CEO Sarah Kate Ellis in a statement. "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 is the second person and first woman to be honored with the Advocate for Change Award; the first was President Bill Clinton, who received the award in 2013.

Events for this year's GLAAD Media Awards will be held in Los Angeles on March 28 and continue in New York City on May 4.
