Madonna showed up in typical style to the Glaad awards, sporting a boy scouts uniform, and bemoaning her lack of badges due to the fact she was never allowed in, before giving Anderson Cooper the Vito Russo Award.

"I wanted to be a Boy Scout, but they wouldn’t let me join," the singer joked. "I think that’s f---ed 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," she added before stating: "I think I should be allowed to be allowed to be a Boy Scout. And I think they should change their stupid rules." Moving onto the state of equality, Madonna boomed: "I don't know about you, but I can't take this sh-- anymore," she said. "That is why I want to start a revolution. Are you with me? It's 2013, people. We live in America -- land of the free, home of the brave -- that's a question, not a statement." And moving on to Cooper’s award, she said:"Love thy neighbor as thyself. It's an atrocity to me, and I don't accept it," she added, talking about homophobia.

The annual Vito Russo Award is named after the activist and film historian who was one of the founding member of media watchdog group Glaad, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. "I am only here tonight because I've benefited from what they and so many others have done," said Cooper, who came out last summer. The newsman added that "being gay is certainly one of the greatest blessings" of his life, adding that "it opened my head and heart in ways that I never could have predicted".
