Jay-Z and Beyonce Honored With the Vanguard Award at the 2019 GLAAD Media Awards

The superstar couple were honoured during the organisation’s 30th annual awards, which “recognises and honours media for their fair, accurate and inclusive representations of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community and the issues that affect their lives”.

The couple took the stage and Jay honor his mother while Beyonce gives an emotional tribute to her uncle who died of complications due to HIV

“I want to honor my mother who received the award last year,” Jay said. “I get to follow in her footsteps of spreading love.”

“I want to dedicate this award to my Uncle Johnny, the most fabulous gay man who help raised me and my sister,” she said. “He lived his truth and he was brave and unapologetic during a time when this country was not accepting. His battle with HIV was one of the most painful experiences of my life. I’m hopeful that his struggle served to open pathways for other young people to live more freely.”

Jay went on to say, “LGBTQ+ rights are human rights. To choose who you love is your human right. Who you make love to and take that ass to Red Lobster is your human right.”

The Wailers

The Wailers were formed when self-taught musician Hubert Winston McIntosh (Peter Tosh) met the singers Neville Livingston (Bunny Wailer), and Robert Nesta Marley (Bob Marley) in 1963.

The lineup was known variously as the Teenagers, the Wailing Rudeboys, the Wailing Wailers and finally just the Wailers. The original lineup featured Junior Braithwaite on vocals, Bob Marley on guitar, Peter Tosh on keyboard, Neville Livingston (a.k.a. Bunny Wailer) on drums, and Cherry Smith and Beverley Kelso on backing vocals. By 1966 Braithwaite, Kelso and Smith had left the band, which then consisted of the trio Livingston, Marley and Tosh.

Some of the Wailers' most notable songs were recorded with Lee "Scratch" Perry and his studio band the Upsetters. In 1964, the Wailers topped the Jamaican charts with "Simmer Down". The Wailers also worked with renowned reggae producer Leslie Kong, who used his studio musicians called Beverley's All-Stars (Jackie Jackson, Paul Douglas, Gladstone Anderson, Winston Wright, Rad Bryan, Hux Brown) to record the songs that would be released as an album entitled “The Best of The Wailers”.

Cardi B breastfeeding Kulture in iconic photo

Opinion: Cardi B made our celebrity wall with this iconic photo of her breastfeeding her daughter Kulture.

The photo was posted on her Instagram Page on December 31/2018. She ended the year in style and making a statement.

There is a taboo with public breastfeeding and many women have trouble breastfeeding their babies. Therefore, is photo will not only inspire many young mothers but bring attention to the issue of public breastfeeding. Many argues that the breast has been sexualised and this is the reason public breastfeeding is frowned upon. The breast is food for the new born and it should be acknowledged as such.
