Why Madonna Wore A Boy Scout’s Uniform To GLAAD Awards
Madonna took a swipe at the Boy Scouts of America for its ban on gays, by wearing a Boys Scouts uniform at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards Saturday night in New York City.
The 54-year-0ld superstar was given a standing ovation when she came on stage.
“I wanted to be a boy scout, but they wouldn’t let me join,” Madonna said. “I think that’s f**ked up. I can build a fire. I know how to pitch a tent. I have a very good sense of direction. I can rescue kittens from trees. Listen, I wanna do for the community. But most importantly, I know how to scout for boys. So I think that I should be allowed to be a Boy Scout and I think they should change their stupid rules.”
Madonna was at the awards show to present Anderson Cooper s the Vito Russo Award for being an openly LGBT media professional who has made a significant difference in promoting equality. Madonna called him a “freedom fighter,” and a “bad ass mother f**ker.”
